Above the Narrows - Andrew Wyeth (1960)
Wind from the Sea - Andrew Wyeth (1947)
I was blown away (the reproduction doesn't do it justice, it's much, much more impressive live). As always, I researched more about him when I got home (a month later).
His works have this constant melancholic mood, but are also very beautiful and evocative. Some are even painfully sad and bleak.
Luckily, many critics like Paul Johnson are admirers of his work. His work even inspired the look of M. Night Shyamalan's movie The Village. The house were Joaquin Phoenix's character lives was based on the one in Wyeth's painting Open Shed.
Plus, doesn't Bryce Dallas Howard's character wear a yellow coat like this? (And there was all that talk about the "bad color" and so on. It's been a while since I last watched this movie!)
