“I love the combination of history and people from all over the world that live in Switzerland.  Walking down the street, you hear many different languages and see the rich and extensive history of Basel everywhere you look – Mittlere Brücke (the middle bridge) in the city center, opened in 1226! My favorite place to visit is Fondation Beyeler because its exhibitions, architecture, and grounds are extraordinary. Located a bit outside of Basel, the museum is an idyllic place to spend an afternoon.”

JAMES ROSENQUIST

Initially used as a frontispiece illustration for the 1914 novel, “The Witch,” by Mary Johnston, Wyeth’s painting presents a poignant scene of friendship and understanding between a grieving, independent woman and a generous, misunderstood doctor. Although the two hardly know each other, they have a shared understanding of and reverence for what is good. While the rest of the town searches for the devil in all things, these two choose kindness and light. Here, they take a moment to appreciate the lives they have led and the good they have done. Wyeth’s illustration depicts hope and expectation of good despite the perils and sorrows of human life.
<br>
<br>In addition to illustrating more than 100 books, including adventure classics like Treasure Island, Kidnapped, Robinson Crusoe, and The Last of the Mohicans, Wyeth was also a highly regarded muralist, receiving numerous commissions for prestigious corporate and government buildings throughout the United States. Wyeth’s style, honed by early work at the Saturday Evening Post and Scribner’s, demonstrates his keen awareness of the revealing gesture, allowing readers to instantly grasp the essence of a scene.
