Christina’s World is a 1948 painting by American painter Andrew Wyeth,  and one of the best-known American paintings of the middle 20th  century. It depicts a woman lying on the ground in a treeless, mostly  tawny field, looking up at and crawling towards a gray house on the  horizon; a barn and various other small outbuildings are adjacent to the  house.
This tempera work, done in a realist style, is currently on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, as a part of their permanent collection. As of July, 2010, the work is displayed outside of the main galleries  in an “interstitial space” near the restrooms on the fifth floor.
