Thursday was a special day. I learned about Andrew Wyeth, a well-known American realist painter born July 12, 1917. Although I?ve come across many reproductions of his work, I never knew about the artist. Now I know; works such as Christina?s World (1948) and Helga Pictures (1979) are all his. Wyeth?s father was killed in a car accident in October 1945. In addition to being a personal trauma, the artist referred to the loss of his father as a formative emotional event that affected his artistic career.

If you favor Arshile Gorky, you will love the new Mkrtchyan Art Gallery in Glendale. As an Armenian American, Gorky (1902-1948) was a central figure in the development of 20th century art, blending imagery from his youth in Armenia with innovative artistic techniques. The Mkrtchyan exhibition represents artists who capture a similar emotional and subjective content, and collectively cross boundaries between impressionism, cubism, surrealism and naïve art, which were seminal in Gorky’s early work.
