Secret Sits (Wyeth Wonderland)
With Joséphine Douet, curator of the exhibition
- From 1 March to 19 June 2016
To coincide with the exhibition Wyeth. Andrew and Jamie in the Studio, the museum presented an exhibition on the French photographer Joséphine Douet. Following in the footsteps of the American Realist painter Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009), Douet photographed the places and motifs that inspired him in his native city of Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania.
Douet’s camera captured the mystery and essence of Wyeth’s work as she walked among the city’s hills and encountered the local people, making use of this experience to achieve a new perspective on the painter while also establishing her own close links with the place and expressing them in these images.
