Andrew Newell Wyeth (July 12, 1917 – January 16, 2009) was a realist painter, and regionalist artist. He was one of the best-known of the 20th century and sometimes referred to as the "Painter of the People" due to his popularity with the American public. He was the son of the illustrator and artist N. C. Wyeth, and the brother of inventor Nathaniel Wyeth and artist Henriette Wyeth Hurd, and the father of artist Jamie Wyeth and Nicholas Wyeth.
Wyeth's favorite subject was the land and inhabitants around his hometown of Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, and those near his summer home in Cushing, Maine. One of the most well-known images in 20th century American art is Christina's World (1948), in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
