Thomas Hart Benton (1889-1975)

In 1928, Thomas Hart Benton made a sketching trip that lasted 6 months, traveling thousands of miles across the United States with his student Bill Hayden. The journey proved a major turning point in Benton's career, marking the divide between his early achievement as an experimental modernist and his later career as a major painter of the American scene. Lumber Mill, 1928 resulted from this trip. It was painted both as a tempera on board in shades of grey (offered here) and a larger version in more colors.
