This chapter discusses the events that led to the author eventually getting an interview with the man whom he considers the greatest living artist in America, Andrew Wyeth. It looks at several of Wyeth's works throughout the years, including The Virgin, Crown of Flowers, and Man from Maine. It also examines some characteristics of Wyeth in terms of his artistic tendencies, and states that one reason why people react so positively to Wyeth's paintings can be explained partially by his mastery of drawing and of draftsmanship.
