Unknown Terrain: The Landscapes of Andrew Wyeth (A Whitney Museum of American Art Book) by Adam D. Weinberg,Michael G. Kammen,Whitney Museum of American Art,Beth Venn



Andrew Wyeth occupies a curious place in the art world: esteemed enough to have a major landscape show at the Whitney Museum of American Art yet denigrated enough that the catalog essays are all at pains to explain why it actually is appropriate to consider him an artist of top rank. The work in this show is recognizably Wyeth's, displaying his tightly detailed observation and cool surface underlain by suppressed passion. But many unknown works are reproduced for the first time here, including many watercolors using a loose, unfinished technique. Overall, the show conveys an impressive technical mastery alongside an improvisatory freedom not usually recognized in Wyeth. This beautifully produced book from two Whitney curators offers images that will appeal to long-time fans and perhaps win some surprised admiration from skeptics.

Unknown Terrain book. Organized by Adam D. Weinberg and Beth Venn, Permanent Collection curators at the Museum, both book and exhibition span Wyeth's entire career, from his formative years in the late 1930s to the present. Andrew Wyeth, born in 1917, became associated with the group of artists known as the American Scene painters, among them Thomas Hart Benton, Grant Wood, Reginald Marsh, and. Edward Hopper. Focusing on Wyeth as a painter rather than as a storyteller, Unknown Terrain: The Landscapes of Andrew Wyeth reveals the artist's love of painting as process and material, underscores his technical prowess, and examines the abstract modernist underpinnings of his landscape compositions.

When I was about 14, I discovered Andrew Wyeth from a book in my school library. So I was thrilled to find this newer book, from a 1998 exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, which focuses on his landscapes. Better yet, one third of the watercolors in the show had never been shown before. The paintings go back to the 1930’s, though they aren’t arranged chronologically, but rather loosely into subjects.
