This chapter discusses Newell Convers Wyeth, who is the father of Andrew Wyeth and is considered to be the Father of Agrarian Art. His life and work are a nearly perfect blend of the artistic and the agrarian impulses. This also explains the reluctance on the part of some avant-garde art critics to accept him and his successors as premier artists of the twentieth century.

Keywords:   Newell Convers Wyeth, Andrew Wyeth, Father of Agrarian Art, impulses, artistic, agrarian
