Pulse: Character: Victoria Browning Wyeth
Provenance: Scion of three generations of famously elusive Wyeth artists — her great-grandfather N.C., grandfather Andrew and uncle Jamie.
Where you’ve seen her: At the Brandywine River Museum in Chadds Ford, where her spirited tours regale visitors with an insider’s insights.
What’s on her plate this month: Jamie’s exhibit, Seven Deadly Sins, in which seagulls portray lust, greed, envy, etc., opens September 12th.
On her celebrated grandfather: “Behind every painting is an emotion. Even though he’s done 10,000 different pictures, he had 10,000 different emotions.” Since his death in January, “These paintings aren’t just paintings; they’re little visual memories of my grandfather. That’s all I have left, these paintings.”
Why she loves her job: “I give tours twice a day, six days a week, almost 10 months a year. I still catch myself on the tour staring and saying, ‘How the hell did he do that?’”
