Jamie Wyeth

Biography

A celebrated contemporary realist painter, Jamie Wyeth is also a third-generation member of the famed American artistic dynasty. Though many of his works incorporate subject matter from the Maine coast and his native Brandywine River valley, others depict important individuals and cultural events in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.

 

Born in Wilmington, Delaware near his family home in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, Wyeth spends a substantial portion of his time on the Maine coast, where the landscape and local inhabitants -- animal as well as human -- serve as subjects for his work. He paints in a variety of mediums, having never developed an affinity for egg tempera favored by his father, Andrew.

With their compelling images, strong contrasts, and tactile surfaces, Jamie Wyeth’s works are marked with an intensity regardless of whether they depict people, animals, architecture, objects, or the continually unfolding interaction between mankind and nature.
