Olsen house depicted in Christina's world

Chadds Ford was home to one of the best-known artists of the 20th century, Andrew Wyeth. Perhaps the farm house above looks familiar? It’s the iconic Olsen House, made famous by Wyeth’s painting “Christina’s World“.

His works were sought after by art collectors worldwide. So what happened when 15 paintings disappeared from his local estate?

Were the paintings still in the county? Were the paintings pre-sold and in a private collection? Were they ultimately destroyed because the artwork was so well known?

Join us on Zoom on Wednesday, March 31st at 5:00 pm as Bruce Mowday, author of “Stealing Wyeth”, tells this incredible story. This event is free and open to the public! Please, register below to receive access to this virtual event.
