Wyeth painting on loan at The Hyde
The Hyde Collection has recently installed Andrew Wyeth’s Master Bedroom in its Birdsall Gallery on the second floor of Hyde House.
The painting, which was part of this past summer’s exhibition Andrew Wyeth: An American Legend at The Hyde is on extended loan to the Museum. The work is owned by Andrew Wyeth’s only granddaughter, Victoria Wyeth, who participated in several events surrounding the 2010 exhibition.
According to Hyde Executive Director David F. Setford, “Having one of Andrew Wyeth’s iconic works on display at The Hyde beyond the run of the exhibition presents a wonderful opportunity for visitors who saw last summer’s show to revisit a great work of art, and provides a second chance for those who missed the exhibition to see one of the privately held works from that exhibition.”
Master Bedroom was painted at Broadcove Farm in Cushing, Maine ,the family estate of Betsy Wyeth. Its subject is one depicted in a group of Wyeth paintings that explore the relationship between a bedroom and a window leading tantalizingly to the exterior world.
