N.C. Wyeth's Jetty Tree Achieves $2,450,000


Strong market demand for this remarkable painting drove the sale price more than ten times above its pre-sale estimate in a sale held June 4. Fresh-to-market after a long-term loan to the Brandywine Museum of Art, Jetty Tree, Port Clyde, Maine is the second most valuable work of art sold at Freeman’s, setting a new house record for N.C. Wyeth and representing the highest price for a non–Illustration artwork by the artist. Extensively exhibited prior to the sale, Jetty Tree, Port Clyde, Maine offered a counterpoint to Wyeth’s commercial ventures, satisfying the artist’s desire to create personally meaningful, soulful compositions.
