Genius: Andrew Wyeth

I think that Andrew Wyeth is one of the greatest American painters. Most art critics disagree; they don't think much of him. Even though it's one of their most popular paintings, The Museum of Modern Art doesn't include Wyeth's "Christina's World" in their MoMA Highlights book. Wyeth's paintings have a transcendent quality that I admire. Here is "Christina's World" and "Winter." "Winter" reminds me of my Grandpa Landmark, who grew up on a homestead in Northeastern South Dakota. The area where Grandpa Landmark grew up looks almost exactly like Wyeth's painting.
