WYETH TRIBUTE TO VIETNAM VETERANS ON VIEW AT THE BRANDYWINE RIVER MUSEUM
(March 2003, #007)
Renowned artist Jamie Wyeth's painting Night Vision, which commemorates the 20th anniversary of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, is now on view at the Brandywine River Museum. The painting, completed in 2002, has never before been on view in a museum to the public.
The artist created the painting while wearing night vision goggles, similar to those worn by soldiers in the Vietnam War. The intense greens and yellows produced by the goggles provide a dramatic backdrop for the image of a soldier in Wyeth's commemorative work.
Proceeds from 100 signed, limited edition prints of the painting will benefit Project RENEW, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund's highly successful and innovative mine action program in Vietnam's Quang Tri Province that works to reduce the threat of landmines and unexploded ordnance.
