Lot Essay

The eldest daughter of American illustrator N.C. Wyeth, Henriette Wyeth studied at the Normal Art School in Boston and the Pennsylvania Academy in Philadelphia before returning home to Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania to continue studying under her father's guidance. She was the only member of the Wyeth family to leave the East Coast after she met her husband and fellow artist Peter Hurd with whom she moved to New Mexico. Wyeth flourished in the southwest as an accomplished artist and portraitist. Her notable subjects included actresses, authors and even First Lady Pat Nixon. Her works are in notable institutional collections including the Brandywine River Museum, Pennsylvania; Amon Carter Museum of American Art, Fort Worth, Texas and the National Portrait Gallery, Washington, D.C.
