|Thomas Hart Benton (1889-1975)
Thomas Hart Benton was born in Neosho, Missouri.
His cartoon-like paintings showed everyday scenes of the contemporary Midwest, especially bucolic images of pre-industrial farmlands.
Benton's sympathy was with the agricultural working class and the small farmer, caught in the path of the Industrial Revolution.
His works often show the melancholy, desperation and beauty of small-town life.
