Thomas Hart Benton (1889-1975)


America's foremost "regionalist" artist of the 1930s through the mid-20th century, Thomas Hart Benton portrayed the epic nature of rural American life. Born in the heart of the Osarks, the son of a former Missouri Congressman, Benton studied at the Chicago Art Institute, the Corcoran Gallery in Washington and in Paris and taught at the Art Students League in New York City, where he became an enthusiastic printmaker. Robust and outspoken, Benton's paintings, prints and murals celebrate the land and values that shaped the unique American experience.
His fluid, sculpted figures in his lithograhs showed everyday people in scenes of life in this country at that time.
