Art Brokerage: Henriette Wyeth American Artist: b. 1907-1997. Henriette Wyeth is the eldest daughter of Newell Convers Wyeth and Carolyn Bockius Wyeth. At the age of eleven she began studying art under the guidance of her father. She was a sharp girl although her only general education was in her father's studio. Henriette inherited her father's determination -- even a crippled right hand from a childhood struggle with polio could not prevent her from painting. She attended the Normal Art School in Boston at the age of thirteen and later the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. After her schooling she returned to Chadds Ford and continued her art under her father's guidance. It was here where she would meet Peter Hurd, a student of her father. Their romance became known to all and they would eventually be married. Henriette painted portraits of such well know subjects as actress Helen Hayes, author Paul Horgan and First Lady Pat Nixon. Throughout her career, Henriette painted members of her family including her children Michael and Ann Carol. Capturing more than a likeness of her subjects, she positions the figure to be a design of her own creation.
