The Denver Art Museum presents a groundbreaking exhibition exploring the art of Andrew Wyeth and his son Jamie. Wyeth: Andrew and Jamie in the Studio is organized by the Denver Art Museum and will feature more than 100 works created in a variety of media, including pen and ink, graphite, charcoal, watercolor, dry brush, tempera, oil, and mixed media.

This exhibition explores the connection between two American artists who shared artistic habits of mind while maintaining their own unique artistic voices. Never before has an exhibition displayed Andrew Wyeth's and Jamie Wyeth’s work on this scale and in the shared context of their autobiographies, studio practices, and imaginations.

Whether you are new to the work of Andrew and Jamie Wyeth or are familiar with it, this exhibition will allow you to see their art converge and diverge over the years. The common thread that runs through their works as well as the distinctive practices of each will be apparent.

An exhibition catalog was published by the Denver Art Museum in association with Yale University Press.

Wyeth will be on view at the DAM through February 7, 2016, and a selection of works will then travel to the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid, Spain.

Three works of art by Andrew Wyeth on loan from the Bank of America Art Collection were on view through January 24 in the North Building, level 6. Included in museum admission.

Wyeth: Andrew and Jamie in the Studio is presented by Bank of America. This exhibition is organized by the Denver Art Museum. Exhibition funding is provided by the Friends of Painting and Sculpture, a support group of the Denver Art Museum; Carolyn and Robert Barnett; Fine Arts Foundation; the donors to the Annual Fund Leadership Campaign; and the citizens who support the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD).
