The importance of this remarkable show in Portland is that it demonstrates that Wyeth ultimately succeeded in creating fine art. The building of the studio in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, provided impetus for developing his artistic identity. In this exhibition, a large photo-mural of the interior of the studio gives a lively illusion of being in the Wyeth working space, which turns out to be a wiley way of drawing visitors into N. C.’s world, even if his first illustrations were of the West, cowboys, and horses, evocative of Remington.
