Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009)

Andrew Wyeth, the greatest American Artist of the 20th century (along with Edward Hopper) died on January 16 at the age of 91. His watercolors are peerless. He captured the beautiful landscapes of the northeast, particularly near his home in Chadd's Ford, Pennsylvania. His realism was a refreshing reminder of what art ought to be in contrast to charlatans like Andy Warhol.
