In truth, his early watercolors of the 30s and 40s, written in a free manner, were indeed not without some abstractness. Despite the opinion of detractors, Wyeth’s style has changed and transformed over the years of his career, which contradicts both those who accused him of moving “along the beaten track” and those who set him as an example of “continuity and constancy in the conditions of instability and uncertainty of modern life. ” Continue reading
