Messy Painting and Fleeting Moments: The Studio Practice of Andrew and Jamie Wyeth

Wyeth Day Lecture by Dr. Timothy J. Standring

Presented by the Farnworth Art Museum.

This lecture examines the studio practices of Andrew and Jamie Wyeth for whom it could be said inspiration for many of their great works came in a flash. They would then seek to bring the fleeting idea to visible form while simultaneously striving to sustain the instantaneity of the moment. Both artists capitalize on the interplay between imagination, memory, and experience channeled through their dazzling technical abilities.
Dr. Timothy J. Standring is the Gates Foundation Curator of Painting & Sculpture at the Denver Art Museum. In addition to his Wyeth: Andrew and Jamie in the Studio, scheduled to open in Denver this November before it travels to Madrid, he has curated ten other shows at the museum, including the Becoming Van Gogh and Castiglione: Lost Genius. He has published many articles for a wide variety of journals on topics that have covered a broad range of subjects, including the art collecting habits of 17th-century Roman patrons, monographic studies on European artists, British watercolor sketching, Impressionist portraits, and reviews of exhibitions on many artists.
