Victoria Chick - Exploring Thomas Hart Benton Country

Regionalist painter, lithographer, and muralist Thomas Hart Benton (1889 -1975 ) was a son of Missouri, and, although he studied modern art trends in Europe, spent years in New York, and was the first artist to have his picture on the cover of Time Magazine, he moved back to Missouri and made his mark on it with murals across the State and by influencing young artists through his teaching.
