Wyeth began spending each summer in Maine at the age of three when his father, the celebrated American illustrator N.C. Wyeth, bought a sea captain’s house in Port Clyde at the end of the St. George Peninsula. Wyeth’s realist portraits often documented the intimate relationships he shared with his community of friends and neighbors in Maine, as is illustrated in the present work.
