Andrew Wythe. Christina's World. This painting always caught my eye. I later found that it was of Wythe's neighor Christina who had polio.
Andrew Wyeth lived in my hometown when I was young. We had several Wyeth prints in our home. Betsy Wyeth (wife) used to stop by my parents antique store - 13 Colonies Village Store - on Rt. 1. She even signed a Wyeth art book my Mom had. Always have loved his work.
