Further Background: "Though contemporaries, the artists James Browning Wyeth and Andy Warhol could not be more diametrically opposed. Jamie, is a third-generation member of the famed Wyeth family, who are celebrated as central figures in the revival of realism in American art (his father is Andrew Wyeth, painter of the American classic Christina’s World and his grandfather, N.C. Wyeth is acclaimed painter of vast landscapes and epic narratives of early Americana). Jamie continued this family tradition as a portraitist and landscape painter, whose naturalistic approach to painting produced highly detailed and visually complex work that captured life in rural Maine, Delaware and Pennsylvania. Andy Warhol, on the other hand, is considered to be the ultimate symbol of Pop. His early paintings presented mass-produced consumer goods, while his later art evolved into mass produced objects in and of themselves, as he applied a factory-like, assembly-line method of production to his silkscreens, which treat such topics as consumer culture, fame (or infamy) and celebrity. Wyeth was an introverted, enigmatic character, while Warhol was transformed into a symbol of the New York social scene with his Factory entourage and was revered as a popular culture sensation. Despite differences, the two artists expressed deep respect for each other’s vision and work. Warhol particularly commended Wyeth’s impeccable technique, saying, “I love his work. I always wished I could paint like him.” Wyeth had always had a particular fascination with Warhol’s earlier paintings, seeing certain parallels between Warhol’s representational paintings and his own work. He stated, “I thought that the Brillo boxes and the soup cans of Warhol’s had a certain power to them. Warhol had taken the actual object, not really messed around with it or abstracted it in any way and it had a certain vitality. Why abstract the object if the object is what hits you?” This mutual interest in the other’s work resulted in a portrait-exchange between the two artists in 1975."
