Wyeth Walks

Broken Heart – Wyeth Walk #228

“The loss of someone very close to you…does something you can’t get any other way. [My father’s] death shook me to my foundation. I think it lifted me out of being an ‘artist’ into actually facing life… it gave me a reason to paint. …I was emotionally at rock bottom. I saw the country even more simplified and somber – symbolic.” – Andrew Wyeth

As quoted in Andrew Wyeth: A Spoken Self-Portrait by Richard Meryman
