|Andrew Wyeth, Wind from the Sea, 1947
tempera on hardboard
Gift of Charles H. Morgan
Andrew Wyeth’s fascination with windows is explored for the first time in an exhibition on view at the National Gallery of Art, its sole venue, from May 4 through November 30, 2014.
Andrew Wyeth: Looking Out, Looking In will present some 60 tempera paintings, watercolors, and drawings that stand out from among 300 or more works of art by Wyeth depicting windows in figureless compositions. Inspired by the gift of Wyeth’s first and one of his most important paintings on the theme—Wind from the Sea (1947), donated to the Gallery in 2009— the exhibition will include several works from private collections that have never been on public view.
Andrew Wyeth: Looking Out, Looking In is organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington.
The exhibition is made possible by Altria.
It is also supported by The Mr. and Mrs. Raymond J. Horowitz Foundation for the Arts.
Additional funding is provided by The Exhibition Circle of the National Gallery of Art.
