Catalogue Note

Throughout his career Andrew Wyeth maintained a close relationship with his neighbors, particularly Karl Kuerner, who served as a surrogate father to Wyeth after the untimely death of his father N.C. in 1945. The Kuerner Farm, located approximately one mile from the artist's home in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, was the subject of numerous works by the artist over a period of seven decades. In Cordwood, Wyeth depicts recently chopped firewood ready to be stacked inside the shed on the Kuerner Farm.
