The hidden landscape
Finally, Walter did just that. What he found was a more abstract, moody, and quickly executed landscape painting. Chisholm points out that Wyeth often used both sides of his paper, in this case framing "The Trammel" to display the better, more important work. She added that the landscape, now that Walter has revealed it, makes "The Trammel" even more interesting — though not necessarily more valuable. Still, at a current value of around $450,000, it represents a sizable appreciation on Walter's original investment.
