Context
The nationally recognized photojournalist Kosti Ruohomaa first met Andrew Wyeth in 1947, and four years later was invited to accompany him on a visit to the Olson House. Of the few photographs he made on that visit was this posed shot of Alvaro, Christina, and Andy looking out a kitchen window, capturing the warm friendship the three enjoyed.
