THOMAS HART BENTON
Lithograph, 1945. 255x322 mm; 10x12 5/8 inches, wide margins. Edition of 250. Signed in pencil, lower right. Published by Associated American Artists, New York. A superb, dark impression.
As the title references, this lithograph represents a farming scene on Martha's Vineyard, where the small, uneven, rock impeded fields were still cut with scythes. The lithograph is based on a drawing and painting of the same subject that Benton made in the mid-1920s. Fath 68.
