Visit our site completely devoted to the works of Thomas Hart Benton, thomashartbenton.com.

Likely the most important painter of the American Scene Movement, Thomas Hart Benton created a style and addressed subject matter that was uniquely American as well as specific to his state of Missouri, and that combined elements of modernism and realism. His signature painting was regionalist genre, especially laboring figures. In addition to many murals, he also painted landscapes and portraits.

He was both a prolific lithographer and writer, including two autobiographies, "An Artist in America," and "An American Art." Fellow Missourian and former United States President Harry Truman said that Benton was "the best damned painter in America."
