Magical & Real: Henriette Wyeth & Peter Hurd, A Retrospective

Co-organized with the Roswell Museum and Art Center in New Mexico, Magical & Real is the first joint retrospective of Wyeth and Hurd's work since 1967, and the first scholarly exhibition to seriously consider the work of either artist in thirty years. The exhibition re-situates Hurd and Wyeth into the larger dialogue of American art in the 20th century, with the aim of broadening awareness of the entire scope of their work while grappling with the tensions that exist between the eastern and western arts communities. It will also reintroduce audiences familiar only with the name Wyeth to the significant body of work produced by the woman that Andrew Wyeth felt was the most talented of all N.C. Wyeth's children. Accompanied by a richly illustrated scholarly catalogue with essays by Jensen and Woodbury, Magical & Real will include approximately 70 paintings, augmented by video and audio recordings not yet seen or heard in public, that document their lives and careers.
