  Andrew Wyeth   (Rockland, ME) The Farnsworth Art Museum is deeply saddened by the passing of the great American master Andrew Wyeth. It was in 1944, four years before the Farnsworth even opened, that the museum purchased watercolors by the emerging young artist out of a show at Macbeth Gallery in New York.
