Andrew Wyeth at Auction

Christie’s 23 May 2014

Three Generations of Wyeth: The Collection of Eric and Cynthia Sambol were offered in the sale on May 23.  Comprised of thirteen works by N.C., Andrew, and Jamie Wyeth, the collection includes important and notable works from three generations of arguably the most remarkable American art family dynasty of our time.  




Six works by Andrew Wyeth were offered in the Sambols’ collection and Rocky Hill (; estimate: $1,800,000-2,400,000) embodies the hallmarks that have made him one of the most enduring figures in American Art.  Andrew often worked in series, becoming devoted to particular locations and the subjects, thereby allowing him to lend sincerity to his style without sentimentality.   The subject of Rocky Hill is his faithful dog Nell, who Wyeth often revisited as a subject.    The work not only embodies a sense of loneliness, but also pays tribute to the passage of time and the people and places that inhabit the artist’s daily life in Maine and Pennsylvania.   The permanence of the forest and terrain juxtaposed with the living creature, standing at attention, make Rocky Hill among Andrew Wyeth’s most profound representations of the theme of the passage of time.
