Andrew Wyeth, a realist painter from Pennsylvania, painted what he saw around him – the people and the settings. The man in this watercolor was vagrant World War II veteran, Willard Snowden, who lived with Wyeth for several years. When creating artworks, Wyeth was most interested in the light and shape of a subject. Snowflakes is an exemplary work of watercolor on paper. This matted print represents the work in full color detail.
