This is an attic window in the farmhouse at Kuerner's farm in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. Andrew Wyeth painted this farm and its people hundreds of times.
Strange but true: Wyeth suspected that there might be surveillance cameras in these windows. The reason was that during World War 2, German POWs were put to work on the farm. However, Karl Kuerner Sr. was a German soldier in World War 1. So, apparently the FBI came a few times to check up on the POWs to make sure Karl wasn't springing them loose or something.
One day Wyeth ventured into the attic and was relieved to discover that there were no cameras or listening devices set up.
The painting is ten inches wide by eight inches tall. It is an oil on a board. It was painted on-site, en plein air.
***Note on Shipping***: I only charge what it actually costs to ship items. I am not trying to make money from the shipping charge. I will refund any difference between the posted charge and what it actually costs to ship. The posted charge may seem high because there is a big difference between shipping a framed painting in a box versus a smaller print in an envelope - but sadly I haven't figured out how to make the Etsy shipping calculator more discerning about that!
