The Journal is the Rockland, Maine, Island Institute's annual magazine. The new issue will be made available Saturday at a special event at the Institute honoring the artist, who died in January at the age of 91. The Wyeth family were founding members of the non-profit Institute.
"This last tempera, completed in October 2008, is the highlight of an extraordinary folio of Wyeth's Maine-island work featured in this year's expanded 25th anniversary edition of Island Journal," the Institute said in a news release Tuesday. "The folio is accompanied by an essay by Chris Crosman, former director of Rockland's Farnsworth Art Museum."
