Painter Andrew Wyeth Dies

Andrew Wyeth, the reclusive American painter famous for "Christina's World," died in his sleep last night at the age of 91. The artist, whose erotic "Helga" series made headlines when it was discovered in the 1980s, is one of the most acclaimed American painters of the last century. He died at his home in Brandywine, PA, not far from where "Christina's World" was painted in 1948.
