Thomas Hart Benton: Drawing from Life

£17.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Prior to painting his murals or illustrating books, Thomas Hart Benton would make preliminary drawings, whether in the studio or outdoors. This book brings together over 190 of his many drawings which reflect all of his styles and subjects. The central role that his drawing played in the construction of his murals is clearly explained in this artistic biography, giving examples of each stage along the way. This work captures Benton's pugnacious personality and aims to reveal his life through his drawings. This study orginally accompanied a travelling exhibition of Benton's work, organized by the Henry Art Gallery in Seattle in 1990.

Condition: Some general shelf wear and soiling to cover and edges of textblock. Name of previous owner on fly leaf but otherwise free of notes or other markings.
