By Kirsten M. Jensen, Ph.D., Gerry and Marguerite Lenfest Chief Curator


The eldest child of N. C. Wyeth, Henriette Wyeth (1907-1997) began working with her father in his studio from the moment she could hold a pencil. She was revered locally for her talent as a portraitist and earned critical recognition for her luminous and lyrical large-scale fantasies, which have overtones of Georgia O’Keeffe and Marie Laurencin.

Dr. Jensen will discuss Wyeth’s early training and career, her relationship with her father and his student Peter Hurd, her 11-year struggle to determine whether Pennsylvania or New Mexico would be home, and the last five decades of her 70-year career in New Mexico.
