This repurposed late nineteenth-century schoolhouse served as Andrew Wyeth's studio from 1940 to 2008. Wyeth, one of America's best-known twentieth-century artists, created thousands of paintings and drawings here, inspired by the people, architecture, and landscapes of Chadds Ford. The studio provides visitors with an opportunity to experience the private realm of this iconic artist.

In 2014, this site was designated a National Historic Landmark.

Tours of the house and studio are offered seasonally. Tickets must be purchased in advance at the Brandywine River Museum of Art. For tour times and availability go to www.brandywine.org.
