About this product
- DescriptionSeries of essays by Henry Adams examining artist Thomas Hart Benton. Adams examines the battles of Benton's career, including the struggles over the subject matter of his murals and his love-hate relationship with the student with whom he worked most closely, another iconic artist of the 20th century, Jackson Pollock.
- Author BiographyHenry Adams is a graduate of Harvard University and received his MA and Ph.D from Yale, where he received the Frances Blanshard Prize for the best doctoral dissertation in Art History. He is the author of more than 350 publications on American art, including Eakins Revealed, which Andrew Wyeth described as without question the most extraordinary biography I have ever read on an artist. Currently the Ruth Coulter Heede Professor of Art History at Case Western Reserve University, he is widely regarded as the foremost scholar of Thomas Hart Benton's work. He was the curator of the centennial exhibition of Benton's work at the Nelson-Atkins Museum in 1989. In partnership with film maker Ken Burns, he developed a documentary film on Benton which was broadcast nationally on PBS to an audience of over 20 million.
