THOMAS HART BENTON: The Complete Editioned Lithographs
Presented by the State Historical Society of Missouri and Dr. Virginia Laas
This exhibition organized by the State Historical Society of Missouri presents the Society’s complete collections of the editioned lithographs of Thomas Hart Benton. 90 master prints dating from 1929 to 1974 reflect the many changes that took place in Benton’s attitudes and artwork over the course of his life. Many of these lithographs are variations of famous Benton paintings, and the diverse imagery attests to the complexity of the artist’s aesthetic, political, and social ideas.
