WHEAT FIELDS



My friend Jôka, from the blog Avenida Copacabana , when saw my wheat's photos, remembered that painting, that I also love, by the great American realist painter, Andrew Newell Wyeth (born July 12,1917). This painting, named Christina's World is the most famous work by Andrew Wyeth. Painted in 1948 this tempera work is displayed at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. It shows a woman named Christina Olson, who had an undiagnosed muscular deterioration that paralyzed her lower body, dragging herself across the ground to pick flowers from her garden. She is the subject of a number of other paintings by Wyeth, along with her brother.








A panorama of beautiful wheat fields and a farm.

  2. The wheat fields are lovely. It reminds me of the line "for amber waves of grain" from the song "America the Beautiful"
    Great photos Sonia!

  4. Very intersting approach to show a subject, Sonya. Looking through this pictures was like reading a book, couln't wait to flip to the next page.

  5. Wonderful things you are doing with your blog template (I wasn't even able to but my favorites back up)! I love the images, remind me of the kind of wide expansive hills I grew with.

  6. What a fantastic landscape! I really love it! A good idea also to zoom backwards! Two crops per year? Brazil, such an enormous country with so varying landscapes!

  7. Sonia, essas fotos lindíssimas são um descanso para os olhos e para a mente. Venho sempre aqui. E com a sua licença, indico.
    Grande abraço, e até mais.

  8. These fields should see in person as so many other landscapes, I understand.
    It must be a wonderful sight - a golden wheat.
    Wheat is growing only in the southern part of Finland because of our weather conditions, rye can manage more to the north and barley grows even in Lapland.
    Happy days to you!

  9. Linda fazenda, e linda a topografia de Avaré. Aqui nos meus morros, estou com saudades das plinicies daí!
    Ótimas fotos, como sempre!

    Lembrei de você, numa visita que fiz ao blog, novissimo de uma amiga REAL( não virtual) Vi Leardi.
    De uma olhada:

  11. Sonia, essa fotos realmente são de um bom gosto impressionante.
    Que lindo céu azul, esse campo, que nos faz ir longe.
    Me dá saudade da infância, quando tinha disponível um espaço infinitamente grande, para olhar, admirar, caminhar, enfim, viver.
    É o seu post me fez viajar.
    Um beijo.

  12. Superb landscapes. I love to see same frame taken wide and zoomed. Countryside is gorgeous as usual.

    I'll be away some day and I'll be back in October. Ciao Sonia, take a care !

  13. Sonia, essas paisagens me fazem lembrar de um pintor americano - ele colocou uma mo�a de vestido, deitada em primeiro plano, e o cen�rio � praticamente o mesmo.
    N�o me lembro o nome desse artista, mas a imagem j� faz parte do inconsciente coletivo.

    Muito obrigado por sua mensagem t�o gentil de feliz anivers�rio !

  15. This is not too close to where you live, is it Sonia? Why does it surprise me to see Wheat Fields...?? These picrures are BEAUTIFUL, as always, Sonia....Again, I think you live in such a beautiful country with many varied places and terrains....The contrast of Sao Paolo to these wheat fields says it all, doesn't it? Lovely, my dear, just lovely!

  16. Sincere thanks to you and your friend for adding this fantastic painting! I had seen it - and some other Wyeth paintings -, but did not realise the story behind this one! It makes it even more fascinating! He painted a lot of Olsons (no relatives, as far as I know) and Ericksons... Have a nice weekend, Sonia!

  17. Sonia, o Joka tem razão, tem tudo a ver. Ficou perfeita a postagem agora!
    Parabéns a ambos!

    Bjs

  18. Oh yes indeed, Sonia. I know that painting very well, and in fact, I have seen it in MOMA.....It is perfect for this post, isn't it?
    Thanks for letting me know, my dear.

  20. Sonia, nunca tinha percebido que essa moça do quadro tem uma deficiência física e que está se arrastando porque não consegue andar.

  21. The wheat fields are beautiful and you know how to show them. You always have an eye-pleasing post, Sonia!

    ReplyDelete
  22. How impressive painting with that story!
    Thank you sharing it, Sonia!
    And happy weekend to you!

  23. More beautiful photos I am catching up on blogs after my Holiday in Canada.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I grew up in Wyeth country ... I love all three Wyeth's paintings and I love your photos. Beautiful country.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Your topics for posts are just intriquing! I've heard you can hear the wheat talk to you in the breeze... it's such a different beauty.

  26. Sonia, mandei um comentário, mas acho que não foi.
    Belíssima pelo simbolismo e por tudo enfim, a pintura de Andrew Newell Wieth, Christina´s World.
    Meus parabéns pelo bom gosto das postagens sempre.
    Bom domingo.
    Até mais

  27. Olá Sonia, tudo bem?
    Passando para desejar à vocês um lindo domingo e feliz.
    Com muito sol, neste primeiro dia da primavera.
    Um beijo

  28. This is a really eerie coincidence!
    Your panoramic views are truly spectacular. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  29. And the wheat fields remind me of the Dakotas and Nebraska in our country. There is a stark beauty about the vast expanse and the distant horizon. Wyatt's painting always makes me catch my breath since it reminds of my long-ago, deceased mother who was badly crippled with rheumatoid arthritis. It's a beautiful painting of a beautiful woman.

  30. Sonia, o campo seco deu um tom bonito e ao mesmo tempo triste na paisagem. O inverno froi seco demais, não? Espero uma primavera mais úmida para voces aí.
    Beijo, menina

  31. Sonia, obrigado pelo link do Drops! Não havia visto ainda, daí só agora estar agradecendo. Amiga é para isso...

  32. We had a huge Andrew Wyeth exhibition at the High Museum of Art here in Atlanta not long ago. What a feast for our senses it was!

  33. Sonia minha querida, ví lá na Marília que você não estava conseguindo abrir os links no blog da Luci, acho que era momentâneo, porque fui lá agora e consegui, tanto no último post quanto no penúltimo.
    Pode dar uma olhadinha se quiser.
    Um beijo.

  34. How beautiful are your fields of grain. You must have had a wonder drive to Avare.

    Sonia, thanks for visiting Mama and Me from PDX. The earthquake did no damage, and according to the experts, it does not mean we're in for a run of tremors. Hooray!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Sonia, estou encantada com as fotos, não imaginava que tão perto tivéssemos estas lindas paisagens rurais, com estas planícies. Muito lindas!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Amazing comparison.

    Maybe you should sit on the wheat field and have someone take a photo of you posing like the painting. :-)

  37. Sonia: Thank you for visiting my little blog here in Canada, and thank you also for your kind words about our Wendydog. She was a lovely creature, so calm and obedient and loving, and above all, such a fun compaion. We will all miss her, but the people who miss her the most are my son and wife, as Wendy lived at their house for the past 6 years. She will always be remembered with love.
    Beautiful wheat field photographs. Such colour and distance and persepctive, lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  38. The field you showed looked very much like the field Wyeth painted. But I was in the area where he painted his picture, in Maine USA. There are lovely fields all over the world, aren't there!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love to see photos of your beautiful country Sonia. What a way to see the world! The wheat fields are so vast and serene.
    I also enjoyed the photos of Sao Paulo. What an interesting and attractive city it is.
    The sandles with socks pics made me laugh :) That's a fun idea.
    Yes, we had a great time visiting the kids :)

  44. I too was always intrigued by that painting, and had a print of it framed and hung on the living room wall for many years. It can be interpreted differently by different people - I always thought it expressed desolation and loneliness.

    I must say the colors in your digital file are much better than the ones in my print!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Thanks for the art notes. I didn't know she suffered. Though after you mentioned it, I saw her differently.

    Um grande abraco
