That Gentleman, 1960

Andrew Wyeth

Dallas Museum of Art

Andrew Wyeth wrote admiringly of his sitter for this portrait, his neighbor Tom Clark: “His voice is gentle, his wit keen, and his wisdom enormous. He is not a character, but a very dignified gentleman who might otherwise have gone unrecorded.” Wyeth’s painting techniques echo his penetrating observation of his subjects. He gave his works an introspective, absorbing feeling by paring away details and confining his palette to subdued browns, blacks, and grays, painstakingly executed in tempera.
