Books: A Piece of the World by Christina Baker Kline
“To Christina Olson, the entire world is her family farm in the small coastal town of Cushing, Maine. She is tied to her home by health and circumstance, and seems destined for a small life. Instead, she becomes Andrew Wyeth’s first great inspiration, and the subject of one of the best-known paintings of the twentieth century, Christina’s World. –book jacket–
ALSO: Andrew Wyeth: A Secret Life by Richard Meryman
“A revelation. No one will ever view Andrew Wyeth’s apparently tranquil works the same way again after reading this vivid and astonishing portrait of the turbulent, driven pan who painted them. A wonderful book.
