"One of Andrew Wyeth's most important paintings, Wind from the Sea (1947), is also the artist's first full realization of the window as a recurring subject in his art. Wyeth returned to windows again and again during the next six decades, producing more than 300 remarkable works that explore the formal and conceptual aspects of looking both in and out of windows. Spare, elegant, and abstract, these non-figural paintings are free of the narrative element inevitably associated with his well-known compositions. This ... book presents a select group of Wyeth's tempera paintings ... along with two essays that explore Wyeth's fascination with windows."--Publisher's website.
