Betsy Wyeth, widow and collaborator of Andrew Wyeth, dies at 98


She restored and celebrated the vernacular architecture of the Brandywine area, including the Mill complex where they lived and Mr. Wyeth worked and many other buildings there, and in Knox County, Maine, where she bought three islands, restoring a beacon on the one where Jamie Wyeth now lives. “Betsy’s Village”, her husband called the islands. His aesthetic was sober and resembled a Shaker: wooden benches, file chairs and no pillows. You had to sit up straight.
