Description: Farm Horse is a study for the tempera South Cushing, 1955 (private collection), and depicts a work horse on Frank Crute's farm in South Cushing Maine. A longtime Maine farmer, Frank Crute represented one of the "salt of the earth" New Englanders to whom Wyeth was often drawn. When Mr. Crute noticed the artist sketching one of his retired horses grazing in an open field, he offered to put the mare in all her wrappings for the occasion. The next morning, she posed in her well worn work harness, with brass buckles polished and gleaming, befitting the pride with which farmers like Crute took in their horses.

Notes: This watercolor will be included in Betsy James Wyeth's forthcoming catalogue raisonn? of the artist's work.
