The State Historical Society of Missouri holds one of the few complete collections of the lithographs Thomas Hart Benton published in editions during his lifetime. Over 90 master prints dating from 1929 to 1974 reflect the many changes that took place in Benton’s attitudes and artwork over the course of his life. Many of these lithographs are variations on famed Benton paintings, and the diverse imagery attests to the complexity of the artist’s aesthetic, political and social ideas. Join us for a reception and an evening of Jazz and Blues featuring Benton’s lithographs, complete with music by The Andrew Sieff Band (featuring Dave & Dick Pruitt)!
