The Olson House is the subject of numerous works of art by Andrew Wyeth, including his iconic 1948 painting Christina’s World, now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. This historic saltwater farm is an extraordinary site and was a gift to the Farnsworth Art Museum in 1991.
“In the portraits of that house, the windows are eyes or pieces of the soul almost. To me, each window is a different part of Christina’s life.” - Andrew Wyeth
