With the four-part Artists Flight series, American Masters explores the lives of iconic visual artists Eva Hesse, Elizabeth Murray, Andrew Wyeth and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Wyeth tells the story of one of America’s most popular, but least understood, artists – Andrew Wyeth. Detailing the stunning drawings and powerful portraits he created in Chadds Ford, P. and on the coast of Cushing, Maine, Wyeth explores his inspirations, including neighbor Christina Olsen and his hidden muse, the German model Helga Testorf, who he painted secretly for 15 years.

This book presents drawings that Andrew Wyeth retained for his own collection -- many preliminary to well-known paintings. Created over more than five decades, from 1951 to 2005, they range from portraits of family members and friends to vibrant depictions of objects, landscapes, and buildings in and around the artist's homes in Pennsylvania and Maine. These works reflect the insight, emotion, and technique that are uniquely his. They demonstrate Wyeth's extraordinary skill as a draftsman and the accuracy with which he sees light and dark, enabling him to model forms while suggesting the very substance and texture of what he sees. "I have always been powerfully affected by Andrew Wyeth's drawings and studies -- particularly those studies that do not attempt to cover the whole surface of the paper but instead focus on a few elements, so that the image seems to emerge magically from the empty white background, rather like a photograph that we observe in the process of development." -- Henry Adams

This book is weak. the drawings themselves are amazing, but there should have been more drawings first of all, and secondly some of the ones that are in there are out of focus or fuzzy. Sad! Don't expect too much if you decide to buy this book. I would say its worth $5.

The other person who mentioned that the pictures aren't great quality is right. Many of the pictures in this book are a little fuzzy and a couple are downright out of focus. I have a lot of Wyeth books and I've never been disappointed before this one.
That being said, it's Andy Wyeth so I'll take anything I can get. And there are a lot of drawings in here that I haven't seen before so I enjoyed it. Also the essay at the start about Wyeth's technique is worth reading, so I'm still glad I bought it.

Excellent book if your into art his drawings are so detailed yet so simple.

Really should have been a better book. Considering it comes from the museum practically in existence because of Andy. If you are used to repros such as those in the Helga book, or practically any of his other books (including the really old ones) those in this tome will utterly disappoint you. A great collection of drawings is here it should be said. The size of the book is the problem, but more so it is the photography of the art that is truly horrible. Several images are blurry, and no it was not the drawing itself, and no they did not rely on decades old photos. The photo credit for the book goes to someone who currently works at the museum and all of these images were in the show, available for shooting.

The text, while informative, is really with a little searching, redundant info offered else where in Hoving's books and easy to find articles on the internet.

Am not accusing them of trying to cash in, the book / catalog really should have had a more attentive eye trained on it during production. And for the money one would have to spend on it here, expectations should really be high.

If you are an Andrew Wyeth fan, you DO want to buy this book of drawings. (My scan gives you a fair idea -- sorry I could not push the page down further without breaking the binding.) The drawings ARE a revelation and are wonderful despite the flaws mentioned in a review above. I always wish that they would do better reproductions of Wyeth, so I accept what is offered and always find something interesting. You do get a good idea of his pencil style from this book, and of course the Henry Adams essay "Seven Secrets of Andrew Wyeth's Technique" is well worth reading. I give it 5 stars for what it IS -- another good addition to my Wyeth collection.

I have had great admiration for the work of Wyeth for years now, but this book blew me away with its reproductions of Wyeth's pencil drawings. While most are unfinished pencil studies done as preparatory work for his watercolors and temperas, his skill and technique are awe inspiring. He has the ability to realistically render both the texture of an object and the effect of light on that object without appearing overworked or labored. There is a freshness, immediacy, and sense of spontaneity in all of the drawings.

As someone who wishes to improve his own ability to draw, I found the unfinished nature of the drawings enlightening, allowing me to see the manner in which Wyeth works. It also highlights his ability to see the essentials of what interests him about a scene, and then capture that essence quickly and masterfully.
