About this Item: Harry N. Abrams, Inc, New York, NY, 1987. Hard Cover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. First Edition. When the series of over 240 paintings and drawings of Helga Testorf by the American master, Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009) came to the light the art world sprang back in surprise. It was also believed that Wyeth's closest confidant, his wife, Betsy James Wyeth, was unaware of the artist-model relationship and the work he produced between 1971 and 1985. The works were considered controversial and toured to six venues between 1987 and 1989 to great popular acclaim, this being the catalog for that traveling exhibition. Helga Testorf, a native of Germany, first worked for Wyeth's friends, the Kuerners, as a caregiver and likely first met Andrew in that environment as he painted the Kuerners and their farm on a regular basis. In later years Helga also worked as a caregiver for Andrew as he aged and traveled with the family from their home in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, to midcoast Maine where the family has summered for generations. It was in Camden, Maine, that Helga Testorf inscribed this copy to the owner of ABCD Books and her store manager on July 9, 1999. We purchased the entire store inventory in 2009 and recently discovered the volume in a box of art books. We have never seen a copy signed by Helga, even rarer than those signed by Andrew or Betsy Wyeth. 208 pp. 4to. Minor scuffing to dust jacket from shelf wear, now in mylar cover.Red Cloth boards with gold embossed titling to cover board and spine. Clean and crisp within with small stain at head of text block near the foredge. Seller Inventory # 28208

About this Item: 1985-1987, 1985. No Binding. Condition: Near Fine. No Jacket. The publisher's files (Art & Antiques magazine) for the breaking story of "The Helga Pictures," Wyeth's previously secret cache of 245 paintings and drawings, many nude, of his neighbor in Chadds Ford, PA. Included are: * the transcript of the 1985 interview with Wyeth by editor Jeffrey Schaire in which Wyeth first divulged the existence of the unknown work. 24 pages. This interview was for a story on Wyeth that Arts & Antiques ran the year before the Helga story graced their cover. * a second copy of the 1985 transcript, marked and annotated in preparation for extracting the story from the conversation. * a partial handwritten transcription of the 1985 interview, with notes on images to be used, 7 pages. * a photocopy of the press release for the 1985 article, with edits shown. * a printout of the typescript of that first article, "The Unknown Andrew Wyeth." * a printout of the typescript of the 1986 Helga article, entitled "Andrew Wyeth's Secret Paintings." * storyboard-type layout of the text and images to be used in the 1986 article. * two mockups for the layout of the 1986 article, the first draft using the title of the 1985 article and unrelated text, but with the Helga pictures; the second adding the actual title and text. * 11 proof prints and 3 photo positives of Helga images, most stamped as property of Time magazine; with a black and white proof of their cover story, which reported (as did Newsweek) on the revelation of the Helga pictures a week after Arts & Antiques broke the story. * the typesetting of what seems to be the publisher's (Wick Allison's) introduction to the Helga piece in the 1986 issue, lightly copyedited. * five pieces of correspondence, 1985-1988, from the photographer on the story, Peter Ralston, to the author, Jeff Schaire. * two snapshots of Andrew Wyeth with Jeffrey Schaire, taken by Susan Gray at the 1987 showing of "The Helga Pictures" at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., along with Schaire's invitation to the preview. * three letters from Mary Adam Landa, curator of the Wyeth Collection in Chadds Ford. * the radio transcript of Helen Hayes's piece on Wyeth (for her syndicated program "The Best Years") from 1985, in which she reported on the first Arts & Antiques article, without mentioning the foreshadowed cache of secret paintings. * two file folders full of the fall-out from the Helga story: fan mail and kudos (and some snarky commentary) from other publications, galleries and individuals; press clippings; arrangements for publicity appearances and a proposal for a video; numerous clippings of cartoons and parodies. Wyeth had always been controversial: dismissed by critics and beloved by the public. The Helga story revealed the depth of this chasm, as the 1985 report of an unknown body of work by a major American painter was shrugged off by the art establishment, only to sweep the headlines of popular culture a year later, as Helga became ensconced in the public imagination. Later, the art historian John Wilmerding wrote, "Such close attention by a painter to one model over so long a period of time is a remarkable, if not singular, circumstance in the history of American art." The story of the Helga pictures was one of the most compelling and widely reported tales of an American artist since Jackson Pollock made headlines in the 1940s and '50s. This is the unique, original file that broke the story that eventually made the covers of Time and Newsweek magazines. But for some isolated dampstaining, the archive is near fine or better.

The artist and his wife suggested the theme, "The Four Seasons, " because of the essential role played in his work by the cycle of the seasons. The drawings were selected by Andrew and Betsy Wyeth from works in the house and studio at Chadds Ford, supplemented by some owned by friends. With a few exceptions they had never been exhibited or reproduced. The plates were made directly from the originals.International and expedited orders will require additional shipping.

About this Item: Houghton Mifflin, Boston, 1968. First edition. Wyeth, Andrew. First edition. With numerous full-color plates (some double-spread) of Wyeth's paintings. 1 vols. Oblong folio. Inscribed Copy to Lincoln Kirstein. INSCRIBED by the artist to Lincoln Kirstein on the half-title: "To Lincoln & Fido / Betsy & Andy." Kirstein, who was on the board of MoMA, met Andrew Wyeth after the museum acquired CHRISTINA'S WORLD in 1948. Wyeth was still largely unknown at that time, and he quickly came to rely on Kirstein for support and honest criticism of his work. "Kirstein appointed himself Wyeth's friend, admirer, mentor, and stern critic - in essence a supersuccessor to NC. [.] Wyeth thinks that in the 1950s he needed Kirstein to push him toward more form in his work, more solidity" (Meryman, Andrew Wyeth: A Secret Life (1998) p 239, 243). Kirstein, who disdained most abstract art, was essential in providing Wyeth the confidence he needed to continue work in the face of hostile critics who derided his art as sentimental and unsophisticated. Wyeth was fond of quoting Kirstein's dismissive opinion of the critics, "Why do you want approval from those horses' asses?" (ibid, p. 390).Kirstein was a father-figure to two generations of Wyeth artists, and as Andrew's son Jamie developed his own artistic gifts, Kirstein began to transfer his attention to the younger Wyeth. "After posing for nineteen-year-old Jamie, Kirstein more or less shifted his allegiance from Andrew and became Jamie's friend and mentor. Kirstein told Betsy, 'You gave me the only son I ever had'" (ibid, p. 275)A difficult book to find inscribed, let alone with an association as intimate as this. Original tan cloth with brown cloth spine, dust jacket. Light soiling to boards, but about fine in near fine jacket with minor rubbing at extremities With numerous full-color plates (some double-spread) of Wyeth's paintings. 1 vols. Oblong folio.

About this Item: Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, 1970. First edition. First edition. Illustrated. 224 pp. Oblong 4to. INSCRIBED by the artist to Lincoln Kirstein, "For Lincoln / with love / Andy" and with a post-script, "The FINNISH VIRGIN / is still hanging in the Mill House / -A." Wyeth is likely referring to THE VIRGIN (1970), his celebrated nude portrait of Siri Erickson. This work is part of large series of paintings of Siri, her family, and the Finnish community around Cushing, Maine. The Mill was Wyeth's home in Chadds Ford. The date of the publication of this catalogue and the completion of THE VIRGIN suggest Kirstein was an early admirer of the painting.Kirstein, who was on the board of MoMA, met Andrew Wyeth after the museum acquired CHRISTINA'S WORLD in 1948.

Wyeth was still largely unknown at that time, and he quickly came to rely on Kirstein for support and honest criticism of his work. "Kirstein appointed himself Wyeth's friend, admirer, mentor, and stern critic - in essence a supersuccessor to NC. [.] Wyeth thinks that in the 1950s he needed Kirstein to push him toward more form in his work, more solidity" (Meryman, Andrew Wyeth: A Secret Life (1998) p 239, 243). Kirstein, who disdained most abstract art, was essential in providing Wyeth the confidence he needed to continue work in the face of hostile critics who derided his art as sentimental and unsophisticated. Wyeth was fond of quoting Kirstein's dismissive opinion of the critics, "Why do you want approval from those horses' asses?" (ibid, p. 390).Kirstein was a father-figure to two generations of Wyeth artists, and as Andrew's son Jamie developed his own artistic gifts, Kirstein began to transfer his attention to the younger Wyeth. "After posing for nineteen-year-old Jamie, Kirstein more or less shifted his allegiance from Andrew and became Jamie's friend and mentor. Kirstein told Betsy, 'You gave me the only son I ever had'" (ibid, p. 275). Illustrated wrappers, scuffed, with ring stain on front cover Illustrated, captioned tissue guards. Square 4t0.

About this Item: Generally regarded as "America's Painter," realist Andrew Wyeth is perhaps the most well known of the artistic Wyeth family dynasty, which includes his father N.C. Wyeth, sister Henriette Hurd, and son Jamie Wyeth. Although most recent explorations of this artist have focused on his family and on the Helga pictures, this unique publication chronicles seven decades of an underappreciated yet historically relevant aspect of his relationship to home and community. Andrew Wyeth: Close Friends is the first critical look at a significant body of paintings and works on paper depicting Wyeth's African-American friends and neighbors in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, a quaint village on the Brandywine River, where he has lived since birth.Andrew Wyeth: Close Friends includes over 100 color reproductions of major tempera and watercolor paintings and numerous black-and-white images of graphite drawings. Works reproduced are drawn from public and private collections, with a large number from the personal collection of the Wyeths. In addition to a foreword by Museum Director R. Andrew Maass, the book includes family photographs and facsimiles of personal correspondence. Seller Inventory # 28197
