Andrew Wyeth: The Helga Pictures
by John Wilmerding
Publisher's Description
In August of 1986, the revelation of Wyeth's hidden series of over 240 compelling paintings, drawings, and sketches of a single model received unprecedented media coverage, capturing the imagination of the American public. Transcending the speculations and the controversy surrounding the story are the pictures themselves: luminous, lyrical, and strong. The Helga Pictures offers magnificent reproductions of every work in the series, unfolding fifteen years of intense and inspired collaboration between the painter and his model, unique in the history of American art. Published to accompany a major exhibition originating at the National Gallery of Art, The Helga Pictures is well-documented and meticulously printed.
