Wyeth Day—Betsy’s Gift: A Conversation with Jamie Wyeth
July 12, 2021 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm EDT
Upon Betsy Wyeth’s passing in 2020, the Farnsworth Art Museum received from her bequest twenty-seven works by three generations of Wyeth family artists: six by N.C., two by Andrew, and nineteen by Jamie. Together, they greatly enriched the museum’s already strong holdings of their works, and at the same time demonstrate Betsy Wyeth’s passion for collecting. Farnsworth Chief Curator Michael K. Komanecky will talk with Jamie Wyeth about his mother’s collecting, and his impressions of the works she left to the Farnsworth.
