Thomas Hart Benton : a life by Justin P Wolff( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 876 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Born in Missouri at the end of the nineteenth century, Thomas Hart Benton would become America's most notorious and celebrated painter. The first artist to make the cover of Time, he was a true original: an heir to both the rollicking populism of his father's political family and the quiet life of his Appalachian grandfather. In his twenties, he would find his calling in New York, where he was drawn to memories of his small-town youth--and to visions of the American scene. By the mid-1930s, his heroic murals were featured in statehouses, universities, and museums. Yet even as the nation learned his name, he was often scorned by critics and political commentators. Benton was quick to fight back, but the widespread backlash had an impact--and foreshadowed many of the artistic debates that would dominate the coming decades. This definitive biography places Benton in the context of his historical moment--as well as in the landscapes and cultural circles that inspired him."--Description de l'éditeur

Thomas Hart Benton and the American sound by Leo G Mazow( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Alternately praised as "an American original" and lampooned as an arbiter of kitsch, the regionalist painter Thomas Hart Benton has been the subject of myriad monographs and journal articles, remaining almost as controversial today as he was in his own time. Missing from this literature, however, is an understanding of the profound ways in which sound figures in the artist's enterprises. Prolonged attention to the sonic realm yields rich insights into long-established narratives, corroborating some but challenging and complicating at least as many. A self-taught and frequently performing musician who invented a harmonic tablature notation system, Benton was also a collector, cataloguer, transcriber, and distributor of popular music. In Thomas Hart Benton and the American Sound, Leo Mazow shows that the artist's musical imagery was part of a larger belief in the capacity of sound to register and convey meaning. In Benton's pictorial universe, it is through sound that stories are told, opinions are voiced, experiences are preserved, and history is recorded
