Immortalized by Andrew Wyeth in Christina’s World and numerous other works, this late 1700s-era saltwater farm was occupied by Christina and Alavaro Olson for 75 years. Describing his portraits of the house Wyeth said, “the windows are eyes or pieces of the soul almost. To me, each window is a different part of Christina's life… I did other pictures while I knew them but I'd always seem to gravitate back to the house…It was Maine." Submitted By: Michel Hersen
