Wyeth fills his boots in this interesting self-portrait. Sometimes a still life or a landscape will tell you more about the painter than a traditional self-portrait. In this case : “When I get bored of painting fields, one blade of grass at a time, I love to go stomping around the countryside in thigh high boots”. Who doesn’t? But here is the interesting part – 50 years after this painting is completed Jay Z will buy these boots at a celebrity auction and Beyonce will wear them on a ten city tour. Google it.
