ART AUTHORITY TEAMS UP WITH JAMIE WYETH
Helps make major works more available
Art Authority and the renowned artist Jamie Wyeth announced today that they have teamed up to make a number of Wyeth's works available using top-quality printing techniques and technologies pioneered by the company. The web site FocusOnJamieWyeth.com utilizes Art Authority's print-on-demand technology to make key Wyeth works available for purchase in multiple sizes and frames.
“We are delighted to produce high-quality prints of Jamie Wyeth's artwork that will be accessible to art lovers around the world,” said R. Mac Holbert, head of Art Authority’s Fine Art Custom Printing and the developer of many of the print-on-demand technologies being utilized.
“A few years ago I was looking for a high-quality print of a painting by Edgar Degas,” Wyeth said, “I found Art Authority/1000 Museums online and easily ordered the print from their website. I was impressed with the quality of the print and the overall service. I look forward to working with a company that obviously cares about quality.” Mr. Wyeth played an integral role in designing and developing his Art Authority offerings, from choosing the initial set of works available to the selection of the special high-quality paper to be used. The first set of Mr. Wyeth’s works are available immediately from FocusOnJamieWyeth.com.
About Jamie Wyeth
A celebrated contemporary realist painter, Jamie Wyeth is also a third-generation artist and member of the famed American artistic dynasty. Though many of his works reflect the eternal beauty of the Maine landscape or the enduring dignity of domestic animals and wildlife, others are intensely of their time, depicting important individuals and cultural events in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Included among these are portraits of political and entertainment figures, including President John F. Kennedy, Rudolf Nureyev, Andy Warhol, and Arnold Schwarzenegger; drawings that documented the unfolding drama of the Senate Watergate hearings; pictorial reporting of NASA space launches and splashdowns, and a series of paintings based on the seven deadly sins.
Born in Wilmington, Delaware (near his family home in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania), Wyeth spends a substantial portion of his time on the Maine coast, where the landscape and local inhabitants-animal and human-serve as subjects for his work. He paints primarily in oil and watercolor. With their compelling images, strong contrasts, and tactile surfaces, Jamie Wyeth's works are marked with a portrait-like intensity, whether they depict people, animals, architecture, objects, or the continually unfolding interaction between mankind and nature.
