This biography of the American artist, Andrew Wyeth, covers the complex facets of his personal and professional life. It tracks his childhood of personal home tutors and the nuturing of his artistic talent under the watchful eye of his father, the children's book illustrator, N.C. Wyeth. Andrew Wyeth produced a substantial body of impressive works, his most famous probably being "Christina's World". His paintings sold in the 1970s for millions of dollars. Each chapter in this book is chronological and creative, intertwining his artistic work with corresponding events in his personal life, including his latter years when he suddenly showed great interest in painting nudes leading him into a secret liaison with the model Helga.
