In his painting 'Master Bedroom,' the simplicity of Wyeth’s work is what first affects us. It is a deceivingly simple straight-forward painting. The room is well lived in, yet neat and charming. The bed is tidily made and one gets the feeling that the bed in this house is always tidily made; that the bed could no more be left unmade than the cows left unmilked and indeed, if the bed wasn’t made, it could only mean that something disastrous had occurred to prevent this chore from being done. There is warmth in the painting and because the bed takes up almost all of the space in the bedroom, it seems to indicate that the life that goes on in that bed is of vital importance to the rest of the unseen house. The love and secrets the bed is privy to has provided it with a life of its own, so much so that this image of a solitary bed, an inanimate object, appears to become a living, breathing character.
