Henriette Wyeth

An Easterner from a family of distinguished painters, Henriette Wyeth came to New Mexico as the spouse of Peter Hurd, whom she met when he was an apprentice artist at her home in Chatts Ford, Pennsylvania. Initially painting more in the American realist tradition of the thirties, Wyeth later evolved in style to a more loose and transparent Impressionism. While her style of painting, however, became more modern, her subject matter remained quite traditional.
