Ever since Frederic Edwin Church
spent a few summers in the 1850s hiking around Mount Katahdin and rusticating on Mt. Desert Island, Maine has been a magnet for artists. In the 20th century Andrew Wyeth
painted the crippled Christina Olsen
gazing up the hill at the Olsen House in Cushing, while Jamie Wyeth
bought Rockwell Kent
’s house on Monhegan Island, where he preferred to paint.
