"Andrew Wyeth: The Helga Pictures presents to the public for the first and only time every work in the series - from a small, closely observed sketch of Helga's eye, through numerous lush studies of Helga asleep, to rich, highly polished drybrushes and temperas." Introductory essay by Leondard E.B. Andrews, who purchased the entire collection with the intention of preserving them as national treasures. Every item of the 240 work Helga series done by Wyeth between 1971-1985, when he chronicled this one woman with passionate intensity and artistry. She appears in all moods and all seasons--wrapped in sheepskin, crowned with wildflowers, lying among autumn leaves; she undergoes the physical changes the years make. Over and over there are rare glimpses into Wyeth's working methods as finished works emerge from studies marked with flashes of artistic intuition, Foreword by J. Carter Brown. This is a new, unopened, unmarked copy. Both the volume and the dust jacket are in perfect, pristine condition. AS NEW/AS NEW.. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall
