Description

A prominent realist painter during the modern era, Wyeth focused on rural themes throughout his long career. End of Olsons is the final painting he produced at the rustic Maine home of a family he befriended for more than twenty years. Its two occupants had died recently, and Wyeth’s composition presents the abandoned house accompanied by a pair of swallows soon to depart for the winter.
