Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009) was one of the most popular and least understood American painters. Dubbed a magic realist he was for a long time overshadowed by his abstract expressionist peers. His breakthrough came with the MOMA´s acquisition of CHRISTINA’S WORLD which is now an Icon like AMERICAN GOTHIC. Filmmaker Glenn Holsten had access to Wyeth family members, archive material including home movies, the complete body of work as well as the locations which inspired the painter who in masterly fashion “could paint the wind” and “was an artist 24 hours a day”.
