  • Editor’s Note:

    “There is a great technical facility shown in the realistic style and meticulous execution of all Jamie Wyeth’s works… Wyeth’s attention to accuracy and detail of animal anatomy is such that when ‘Portrait of Pig,’ his picture of a neighbor’s pink and white sow named Den-Den, was exhibited at the Joslyn Museum in Omaha, the ‘Hog King of Nebraska’ came up to shake hands and accurately diagnosed a snout condition based on the painting.”

About the Artist

Jamie Wyeth is the artistic heir to the Brandywine School Tradition – a group of painters who worked in the rural Brandywine River area of Delaware and Pennsylvania, portraying its people, animals, and landscape.
