The legacy of the contribution to American realism by the Wyeths is without question. Jamie Wyeth, son of Andrew and grandson of Newell Convers, carries forth his family’s artistic tradition, while interjecting his own personal style. His paintings have been shown extensively around the world, most notably a 1971 touring exhibition which featured his works alongside those of his father and grandfather.

In 2002, Jamie Wyeth created a richly detailed print for Lincoln Center entitled, The Gourd Tree.  Known for his realistic style, Wyeth’s work consists largely of landscapes-- like this unusual tree-- and portraits. Although closely associated with the rural landscape of Chadds Ford Pennsylvania and the rugged coast of Maine, Jamie Wyeth spent part of his early career in New York City, where he was mentored by New York City Ballet founder Lincoln Kirstein.  Later Wyeth worked in the studio of his friend, Andy Warhol.
