passing of a great---
He painted so many images of death and lived so long...It took me a long time to really get his work--There may have been a certain amount of resentment of his fame and conversly his Dad's obscurity. As a youngster in the seventies I didn’t know Andrew was out of fashion. He seemed huge to me. I was to shallow to see into a portrait to feel the inner power. I’d just see a tight painting of a farmer. His Dads stuff went right to the heart of adventure for me as I was raised on his book illustrations. I think I also resented the fact AW was about the only representational artist ( that seemed to me) acceptable to the crappy modern art world. Why just him I thought? He’s not so freaking great... I was wrong... Callow youth
I had to read about him to feel the depth of observation under his surface approach. His Dad was such a titan whose paintings are so very full of bravura acting and colorful energy it was hard to like the son’s quiet work. Seeing Andrew Weyth’s art in person also helped, I learned to like his quite scrutiny of the world around him. His Dad created worlds, AW recorded them. Both were valid and I can’t think two generations of artists who were so equally important in the history of art.
