Please join me for a visit to the Hudson River Museum to see their new exhibition: one that juxtaposes works of Andrew Wyeth with French photographer Joséphine Douet’s beautiful photographs. When I saw the exhibition at the press preview, I knew instantly it would be something I wanted to offer as a group visit.
Members and their guests are invited to have brunch at 11:00 that morning at Saint George Bistro in nearby Hastings, more information is below. We will then head to the Museum, and will be able to join a public tour at 1:00 pm. Before or afterwards, we can explore the rest of the exhibitions.
Those who would like to attend can RSVP to Laura, and click the link below for ticket purchase:
Wyeth Wonderland: Joséphine Douet Envisions Andrew Wyeth’s World
February 25 – May 14, 2017

In the countryside of Pennsylvania, French photographer Joséphine Douet followed the path first set by Andrew Wyeth — an elegant, spare, and honest view of the landscape and the people of Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, the iconic American painter’s home.
Wyeth Wonderland: Joséphine Douet Envisions Andrew Wyeth’s World is an exhibition of 27 photographs Douet took in this rural region made famous by Wyeth together with a selection of Wyeth watercolors. Joséphine Douet’s photographs are being shown for the first time in the United States at the Hudson River Museum, and, also for the first time, the Museum explores Andrew Wyeth’s watercolors. Among them are scenes of farms set in low hills, the faces of working men and profiles of young women, the architecture of roofs, doorways and windows, and the animals who inhabit the landscape. Douet said, “My decision to follow in Wyeth’s footsteps and to photograph what he painted and his relationship with his home arose from a combination of my admiration for him and my love for artistic challenge.”
