Thomas Hart Benton: Portrait of a Man

Lot 0269 Details

Description
Thomas Hart Benton (American, 1889-1975) Attributed: Portrait of a Man, Charcoal on paper, signed bottom right.

Thomas Hart Benton is one of the preeminent pre-war regionalist painters known for depicting the culture and inhabitants of the Midwest, particularly his home state of Missouri. Predominantly known for his murals, he was able to make a name for himself by rejecting the art world and creating art that explicitly protested the Ku Klux Klan and fascism, among other things. Between 1926 and 1941, Benton held teaching positions at the Art Students League in New York, where he taught young artists like Jackson Pollock and Glen Rounds, and the Kansas City Art Institute.

This drawing depicts a three-quarters profile of an older man in regional style, with a distressed face and hat. Thomas Hart Benton devoted substantial time to documenting the residents of the Midwest, particularly older gentlemen, in order to combat the pervasiveness of modernism in the art world.
