DAM Features Wyeth, Ruskin

Mathew Brown-Watson


Starting March 10 and continuing until May 27, the Delaware Art Museum will showcase works of Andrew Wyeth (1917–2009) alongside Victorian era art critic and amateur artist John Ruskin (1819–1900).
Both men closely observed their natural surroundings to derive artistic inspiration. Ruskin, credited with anticipating the environmentalism movement, noted that the principal role of the artist is “truth to nature,” a role perhaps best demonstrated by the works of Wyeth.
