The mission of the Andrew & Betsy Wyeth Study Center is to encourage a diversity of scholarly, creative, and general audience engagement with the art of Andrew Wyeth (1917–2009) and his unique creative partnership with his wife, Betsy James Wyeth (1921–2020). 

The Wyeth Study Center was founded by the Wyeths in 1998, when they brought their remarkable collection of more than 3,000 examples of Andrew Wyeth’s Maine work into a purpose-built wing of the Farnsworth Art Museum. In subsequent years, Andrew and Betsy Wyeth played an active role in sharing this collection with the public by helping to organize exhibitions in dedicated galleries at the Farnsworth. Their legacy continues in a new era of collection sharing between the Wyeth Foundation for American Art, the Farnsworth, and the Brandywine Museum of Art, which administers the Wyeth Study Center, including another such facility in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. For more information on the facets of our work, please visit this page.
