Wyeth Walks

Good Fences – Wyeth Walk #95

A fence immediately makes me think of Robert Frost “Good fences make good neighbors.”

NC Wyeth read Frost’s poetry to his family in the evenings; Andrew Wyeth was quoted many times talking about the influence of the poet on his work. Here is a nice summary from the National Gallery of Art: https://yournga.wordpress.com/tag/andrew-wyeth-and-robert-frost/

. There is also a really nice essay comparing the artist and painter by Francine Weiss in the book Rethinking Andrew Wyeth.

I wish I were more alert to summarize some of the essay, but I’m very sleepy, been up parenting at night a lot this past week, and Friday’s concert while wonderful was draining. Hopefully can catch up on sleep soon!
