ANDREW WYETH Extremely rare letter written by Andrew Wyeth at his winter home in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania in 1947 about a painting of the Battle of the Nile. Letters from Wyeth that discuss works in progress and include diagrams drawn by him are rarely encountered in the public market and are highly desirable. 2 pages, 7¼x10¼, single-sided sheets. March 16, 1947, Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania.I have followed the prints of the Guerrier very closely when you return this working drawing you might tell me what color the Guerrier was painted. I was most happy to receive the Mavel (sic) Academy Museum pamphlets for my files, more Thanks. I really think I can make a better water color with this change. The British routed the French in this battle and denied Egypt to Napoleon Bonaparte, and Guerrier was captured and burned. Two months after he wrote this letter, Andrew Wyeth, the American artist noted primarily for his watercolors and drawings of lonely rural life in an almost photographic style, exhibited nine works in the "Annual Award Exhibition" of the American Academy of Arts and Letters and National Institute of Arts and Letters and received their Award of Merit. Letters written by Wyeth that incorporate drawings and discuss a work in progress are most desirable and rarely encountered. Wyeth's work provides almost photographic depictions of lonely rural life. His best-known painting, Christina's World , depicts a neighbor, polio-stricken Christina Olson, picking berries in the grass while looking at her large home on a hill. Lightly toned, soiled and creased. 3 file holes and staple holes at top edge, which touch date but not signature. Lightly dented at top edge. See more material from these signers.
