A strange New York Times obit on Andrew Wyeth is mostly concerned not with Wyeth, but with the allegedly vital critics who didn’t like him. Are critics really more important that artists? That’s a bit like saying barnacles are more important that the ship. Art critics in particular are of little interest since ordinary people have long since stopped reading what they have to say. For me, “Christina’s World” is a devastating portrait of loneliness that is the equal of anything in Hopper, another great painter.
