Some Still Hate the Late Andrew Wyeth
john_j_enright
From an article titled "Why Do Critics Still Hate Andrew Wyeth":

"Modernist and postmodernist art tends to be urban art—the structure and pace of life and media experienced in cities—while most traditional realists have directed their attentions to the countryside. It is for this reason that critics have tended to see realist art as sentimental and nostalgic. There are not just differing ideas about art at stake but competing visions of America."

Do some imagine there's great social harm,
In painting nice pictures of life on the farm?

Good heavens, if you let people enjoy art what happens to Significant Work?

That's right! Capital letters! Significant Work! Don't let those viewers actually enjoy anything, you know, like Raphael did.
