Andrew Newell Wyeth (July 12, 1917 – January 16, 2009) was a visual artist, primarily a realist painter, working mainly in a regionalist style. He was probably one of the best-known U.S. artists of the middle 20th century, and was sometimes referred to as the "Painter of the People", due to his work's popularity with the American public.

He was the son of the illustrator and artist N. C. Wyeth, and the brother of inventor Nathaniel Wyeth and artist Henriette Wyeth Hurd, and the father of artist Jamie Wyeth and Nicholas Wyeth.

In his art, Wyeth's favorite subjects were the land and people around him; both in his hometown of Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, and at his summer home in Cushing, Maine.

One of the most well-known images in 20th century American art is his painting, Christina's World, currently in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
