Andrew Wyeth’s Great War

As a boy in the mid-1920s, Andrew Wyeth was fascinated with WWI. This lecture considers how, through the props and imagery he found in his father’s studio and his collection of military soldiers, Wyeth created his own “war memory” that would nourish aspects of his art throughout his career.
