ANDREW WYETH "Christina'sWorld," 1948, Museum of Modern Art, New York "I love the objects that I paint," says Andrew Wyeth. Cases in point: his self-portrait (upper right), the portrait of his wife, Betsy (lower right), and the world inspired by theirpolio-stricken friend Christina Olson. "I get excited by the shape of a person's nose, the tone of their eyes, or the way their back looks when they're turned away from me. That's my reasonfor painting."
