Featuring 109 works, Jamie Wyeth examines six decades of the artist's career and charts the evolution of his creative process from his earliest childhood drawings through recurring themes inspired by the people, places and objects that populate his world. The exhibition dis- plays paintings, works on pa- per, illustrations and objects in a range of "combined me- diums" -- Wyeth's preferred term for the distinctive tech- nique he brings to many of his compositions. The exhi- bition is on view in the Lois and Michael Torf Gallery through December 28, 2014. "We are so pleased to present Jamie Wyeth as never before, in an exhibi- tion that showcases him as his own man, with a unique artistic vision" said Malcolm Rogers, Ann and Graham Gund Director at the MFA. "We are grateful to all of the institutions and private collectors, especially Jamie and Phyllis Wyeth and Betsy Wyeth, for making their personal collections available to the public for this com- prehensive exhibition of Jamie's work." Wyeth began his artistic career at a young age, and while he left formal artistic education at age 1 I, would go on to study anatomy in a New York City morgue and work in Andy Warhol's studio, The Factory. The exhibition offers a sense of the artist's development over 60 years, from portraits made during his time in New York to landscapes of the worlds he inhabits in the Brandywine River Valley (between Penn- sylvania and Delaware) and Mid coast Maine -- especially Tenants Harbor and Monhe- gan Island. Organized into several themes, Jamie Wyeth includes portraits of sub- jects such as'John F. Ken- nedy; Jamie's wife, Phyllis; Rudolf Nureyev; and Arnold Schwarzenegger shown alongside a selection of pre- paratory drawings and stud- ies that offer a window into the artist's immersive ap- proach to portraiture. Still lifes of pumpkins (a fascina- tion from his youth), images inspired by his participation in NASA's "Eyewitness to Space" program, and his scenes of The Seven Deadly Sins as enacted by seagulls, all display Wyeth's range and virtuosity. "This retrospective offers an opportunity for visitors to examine how an artist devel- ops an aesthetic vision over the course of their career, delving into, experimenting with, and returning to a variety of formats, themes and materials," said Elliot Bostwick Davis, the MFA's John Moors Cabot Chair, Art of the Americas. Wyeth's Portrait of Shorty (1963), painted when he was 17, reflects the culmination of his early years as an apprentice within his own family circle. The portrait Portrait of John F. Kennedy, 1967 picturesque agrarian region where he was born. Wyeth's most recent works in the exhibition include Berg (2012), which was based on his experience of being thrown out of a launch headlong into the frigid waters Portrait of Shorty, 1963 of Tenants Har- bor, as well as a vividly demonstrates Wyeth's series of three paintings preference for jarring con- made since 2009, depicting trasts -- seen in the juxta- a recurring dream of his position of Shorty's grizzled artistic mentors -- Winslow face against the elaborately Homer, Andy Warhol, N,C. patterned silk brocade and Andrew Wyeth -- posed upholstery; in various configurations on Wyeth's formative years the dramatic cliffs of the during the 1960s and 1970s Monhegan Headlands.
