About Andrew Wyeth Wind From The Sea Painting

Painted in one of the upper rooms of the Olson house, which Wyeth was using as a studio. He went up there one day; the room was dry and hot and he threw up the window to cool the room. After beginning the picture, he had to wait two months for another wind from the west to study the blowing curtains. "You can't make these things up," he said. "You must see how it was. Everything was dry and hot-the shade curtains, the lace, the window frame. I tried to get that quality, and the air blowing."
