Abstract

Andrew Wyeth's painting of his friend and neighbor Christina Olson, Christina's World, arguably the best known picture by a living American painter, depicts a woman crawling across a field while gazing toward her house. Christina Olson had a lifelong slowly progressive paralytic disorder. Reflections on her life, clinical symptoms, medical evaluation, and her influence on Mr. Wyeth are presented herein.
