Historic Property Tour- Andrew Wyeth Studio (Andrew Wyeth Studio)
On 11/23/2014

Given to the Brandywine Conservancy by the artist's wife, Betsy James Wyeth, the studio has undergone careful restoration to preserve its appearance when it was used by the late artist.

Wyeth painted in the studio from 1940 until 2008. Thousands of works of art are associated with this studio, including those inspired by the farms and open space of the Brandywine Valley, and the Brandywine River that runs through Chadds Ford and the surrounding countryside.

Historic Property Tour- Kuerner Farm (Kuerner Farm)
On 11/23/2014

For more than 70 years, the Kuerner Farm was a major source of inspiration to Andrew Wyeth. Beginning with his earliest painting of the farm in 1932 at the age of 15, Wyeth found vital subjects in its people, animals, buildings and landscapes for nearly 1,000 works of art. In 2011, the Kuerner Farm was designated a National Historic Landmark.

Thanks in large part to the philanthropic spirit of Karl Kuerner, Jr. and his family, the Brandywine River Museum acquired the Kuerner Farm in 1999 and began offering educational tours in 2004.
