On Sunday, July 14, the Farnsworth Art Museum will present a Wyeth Day lecture titled In Search of a Life’s Work: The Paintings of N.C. Wyeth. This lecture by Christine B. Podmaniczky, Associate Curator of the N.C. Wyeth collections at the Brandywine River Museum, will take place at 1 p.m. at the Strand Theatre, 345 Main St. The lecture is free to the public, and no reservations are necessary.

The N. C. Wyeth catalogue raisonné records almost 2,000 paintings created in a career that spanned five decades. The detailed entries were informed by a great variety of sources including the artist’s correspondence, archival material in private and public collections and hundreds of objects that remain in Wyeth’s studio and home. Podmaniczky will describe the project and review aspects of Wyeth’s career through a selection of paintings, presented with fascinating stories and documentation.

Podmaniczky also oversees Brandywine’s three historic properties: the N. C. Wyeth House and Studio; the Andrew Wyeth Studio; and the Kuerner Farm. She is the author of “N.C. Wyeth, Catalogue Raisonné of Paintings” and curated “Every Picture Tells a Story, Illustrations by N. C. Wyeth from the Brandywine River Museum,” on view through Dec. 29 at the Farnsworth’s Wyeth Center.
