Thomas Hart Benton (April 15, 1889 – January 19, 1975) was an American painter and muralist. Along with Grant Wood and John Steuart Curry, he was at the forefront of the Regionalist art movement. His fluid, sculpted figures in his paintings showed everyday people in scenes of life in the United States. His work is strongly associated with the Midwestern United States, the region in which he was born and which he called home for most of his life

The mural was commissioned in 1930 by the New School's director Alvin Johnson. Benton finished it very early in 1931, when the school opened a new building designed by architect Joseph Urban. Although the artist received no fee for his work on commission, he was "paid" with free eggs, the yolks from which he created the egg tempera paint.

Summary of Thomas Hart Benton. Thomas Hart Benton was one of America's most popular and heavily patronized modern artists during the decades leading up to World War II, and his murals were especially acclaimed. Along with Grant Wood and John Steuart Curry, Benton gained artistic fame as a Regionalist painter, depicting the people and culture of the American Midwest, in particular his native state of Missouri. While his subjects were primarily based in America's heartland, he lived in New York City for twenty years.

Benton's idiom was essentially political and rhetorical, the painterly equivalent of the country stump speeches that were a Benton family tradition. Elizabeth Broun "Thomas Hart Benton: A Politician in Art," Smithsonian Studies in American Art Spring 1987, p. 61. Related Books

Benton's idiom was essentially political and rhetorical, the painterly equivalent of the country stump speeches that were a Benton family tradition. The artist vividly recalled accompanying his father, Maecenas E. Benton-a four-term . congressman, on campaigns through rural Missouri. Young Tom Benton grew up with an instinct for constituencies that led him to assess art on the basis of its audience appeal. Related Books.

Written by a collector who wanted to find a catalog of Benton's lithographs. Because no catalog existed, Creekmore Fath contacted Benton, and they collaborated to prepare this book. Well-written text describes the motivations and quest of a collector who became more of an art history detective. The lithographs illustrate many significant events and conditions of America life from 1929 to 1967. Each of the 80 full-page black and white plates contains annotations in Benton's own hand, with title, alternative titles, dimensions, publication date, edition size, and circulating organization. Contains chronology and bibliography, and index of titles.

Love this book. It is in very good condition with the dust jacket intact. If you are interested in the art of Thomas Hart Benton this is a nice exposure to some of his works. I especially enjoy the artist's hand written comments by each lithograph describing the circumstances of the drawing. Great communications with the seller and very quick shipping. I would definitely buy from them again. :-)

Mr. Fath's collection shows impeccable taste on his part, and his knowledge of his subject and personal reminiscences of Benton make this book a must-have for Benton fans. I see copies on occasion is Austin, but they're hard to find. Highly recommended.
This book, although currently out of print, is a must have for anyone interested in the lithographs of Thomas Hart Benton. It catalogues the works and has additional comments by the artist himself on each work. Good luck finding a copy.
