  • Image of Andrew Wyeth headline

    Working in a realistic style that defied artistic trends, Andrew Wyeth (1917–2009) created haunting and enigmatic paintings based largely on people and places in his life, a body of work that continues to resist easy or comfortable interpretation. Issued to commemorate the centennial of his birth, these stamps celebrate Wyeth as one of the most prominent American artists of the 20th century.
