Wyeth, Betsy James; [Wyeth, Andrew]
Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1982. Fine. Signed first printing of this biography of Andrew Wyeth by his wife and business partner, structured around the story of his most famous painting - a pristine copy in the original shipping box. Betsy James Wyeth is credited with guiding Andrew Wyeth's art in formative ways: as editor, marketer, manager, and critic. (The son of N.C. Wyeth, Andrew's relationship with his father was always strained, especially after the son's success shepherded by Betsy.) Betsy introduced Andrew to Christina Olson, who would become the subject depicted in 'Christina's World' - named by Betsy. A founder of the Brandywine Conservancy described Betsy: "She had the tact of a general and the grace of a queen." 10'' x 13.5''. Original yellow blind-stamped cloth, gilt-lettered spine. In original unclipped ($75.00) color pictorial dust jacket designed by Larry Webster. In original shipping box, with original receipt from Farnsworth Art Museum. Brown endpapers.
