JUSTIN WOLFF: THOMAS HART BENTON A LIFE

Program: 
Host: 
Date: 
Tuesday, September 11, 2012 - 11:00am

Thomas Hart Benton was one of the great Regionalist painters during the American Depression. He painted some of the greatest murals of the twentieth century and captured a unique sensibility of life in the Midwest and rural America on his canvases. Yet he was at times ornery, crude, dogmatic and virulently homophobic. He had personal lifetime fueds with artists like Alfred Stieglitz, Stuart Davis and his student Jackson Pollack. What are we to make of such an “anti-intellectual intellectual” artist?. Tune in tonight for some answers when Inquiry welcomes JUSTIN WOLFF, assistant professor of art history at the University of Maine. Professor Wolff discusses his revealing and dynamic new book THOMAS HART BENTON: A LIFE.
