Description

By Randall R. Griffey, Elizabeth Mankin Kornhauser, and Stephanie L. Herdrich, with contributions from Shawn Digney-Peer and Cynthia Moyer

Thomas Hart Benton is often recognized as the leader of the 1930s movement known as Regionalism, which celebrated rural life in the United States. However, he lived and worked primarily in New York from 1912 to 1935, one of the most vibrant and dynamic periods in the city's history. The pinnacle of Benton's New York years was America Today, a mural cycle painted for the newly erected headquarters of the New School for Social Research. The essay and entries contained in these pages elucidate the mural's rich content, particularly Benton's celebration of the Machine Age and American "progress" in the 1920s.
