'Wyeth's deep attachment to the spirit of the island is shown in "A Recurring Dream" (2011), in which his father Andrew, and his grandfather N.C. Wyeth, wearing rain slickers, gaze out at the surf from a rocky bluff on Monhegan. In "Sea Watchers" (2009), they are joined, improbably, by Andy Warhol and Winslow Homer. The paintings are based on a dream Wyeth had just after Andrew died.'
