THOMAS HART BENTON
Lithograph, 1942. 225x337 mm; 8 7/8x13 1/4 inches, full margins. Edition of 250. Signed in pencil, lower right. Published by Associated American Artists, New York. A superb, richly-inked impression of this very important lithograph.
Based on the same-titled oil painting, now in a private American collection. Benton shows a lone horse racing a steam engine across a barren midwestern prairie. The telephone pole and line are the only other sign of human presence in this bygone scene. Fath 56.
