About Trodden Weed
"If you're going to live a deep life rather than a shallow one, you have to embrace your roots. Wyeth was trained by his father, the great illustrator N.C. Wyeth, and when he came to paint his oblique 1951 self-portrait, "Trodden Weed," he portrayed himself walking the land of his forebears wearing boots that once belonged to his father's teacher, Howard Pyle. We all inhabit the past. We live among ghosts. And now Andrew Wyeth, who knew this better than anyone, is himself history."

-Edger Allen Beem, from an article lamenting the death of the famous painter.
