By Friarofdoom TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 4 Aug. 2006
Format: Hardcover
Andrew Wyeth, though popular and well represented in the USA, is relatively unkown and ignored over here. Hopefully this fine book will go some way to changing that as his works remain fresh, challenging and thought provoking today.

the book is based on 2 exhibitions that took place at the end of 2005 & up to July 2006 in Philidelphia & Atlanta.unlike most books based on exhibitions this one is not limited to a handful of the artists works with page upon page of pompous waffle used as filler.Rather many works are present and a very complete and satisfactory overview of Wyeths talent is on display here. the book is split up into various sections,his artistic inluences,( which include his father),his early work, understanding his meaning and his wife. All these and more come with an abundance of illustrations and in depth but easily understood explanations and histories. the balance struck between depth of information and the amount of actual pictures is managed perfectly, if you wish to just browse you will not be dissapointed but if you want to know more then there is plenty here to learn from.

At the end of each section are brief notes on all the paintings shown in the section which adds even more interest.

Best of all is the final section which has 86 plates of Wyeths work. one plate to each page these come as a bit of a surprise as I felt the pictures throughout the book were printed very nicely, these plates, however, are something else again and quite frankly if the book had been them alone I would still have bought it the quality is so good.

The book uses to grade paper of almost photgraphic paper quality throughout, all the paintings are beautifully copied and never crowded or shown too small to see clearly and the size of the book is just right.

By Benjamin TOP 500 REVIEWER on 5 Jan. 2008
Format: Hardcover
A large format exhibition catalogue, a slightly over square volume printed on quality art paper. The introduction discusses Wyeth's development and output in relation to other artists; this is followed by four essays covering various aspects of the artist's work. These sections are illustrated throughout almost entirely in colour with examples of Wyeth's work and comparative examples of other's, many of them at a good size. The main section of full colour plates commences on age 122 and concludes on page 209. This is followed by a detailed list of works in the exhibition; there is no chronology or bibliography.

The main section of plates presents the images one to a page, and many are of a good size. Inevitably the long landscape proportion images do not fare so well, with the publishers seemingly reluctant to cross the gutter, these appear as little more than a three or four inch wide strip across the page; even a number of the more regularly proportioned works could easily have been reproduced larger. However that aside it is a fine volume, beautifully produced and with a feel of quality, which offers over 150 examples of Wyeth's output including paintings, watercolours and drawings reproduced in full colour.

The book was published as part of an exhibition of Wyeths work. The essays are well written and informative but its the plates that delight. There is information on the medium used and the dimensions of each work which are reproduced in abundance at the back of the book. This is a book to treasure if you are a fan of Andrew Wyeths work.

I found it well worth the investment, found it well researched but very readable and images captured the essence of Wyeth.

This is a beautiful book, a pleasure to own. Half of it is composed of full page reproductions of the paintings and the narrative is very informative and interesting. This half of the book also has plenty of reproductions. I would recommend this particular book to anyone interested in Andrew Wyeth's work.
