Denver-organized exhibition offers new, intimate look at the interconnected approach and artistic practices of father-and-son artists Andrew and Jamie Wyeth

The Denver Art Museum (DAM) announced today that it will present an unprecedented exhibition of this scale exploring the art of Andrew Wyeth and his son, Jamie Wyeth. On view Nov. 8, 2015–Feb. 7, 2016, Wyeth: Andrew and Jamie in the Studio is organized by the DAM and will feature more than 100 works executed in a variety of media: pen and ink, graphite, chalk, watercolor, dry brush, tempera, oil and mixed media. Wyeth will travel to Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid, Spain, following its presentation in Colorado.

“Wyeth: Andrew and Jamie in the Studio explores the connection between two artists who are inextricably linked by their shared artistic habits of mind, while each maintaining his own unique artistic voice,” said Timothy J. Standring, the Denver Art Museum’s Gates Foundation Curator of Painting and Sculpture and curator of Wyeth. “Never before has an exhibition displayed their work together on this scale and in the shared context of their autobiographies, studio practices and imaginations.”
