Instinct told me this was very Streetcar. I immediately saw Blanche and Stanley. As I look for the name. There it was. Poker night. #thomashartbenton#whitneymuseum#art #nyc#astreetcarnameddesire

"Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it." Sometimes black and white works of art are equally as powerful and moving as their saturated counterparts.

"Cotton Pickers Georgia" 1928-29 tempera and oil on canvas by Thomas Hart Benton (1889-1975) at @metmuseum the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Written near the painting: As one of America's foremost Regionalist painters, Benton celebrated the bounty of the land and heroicized industrial laborers and farm workers in his murals and easel paintings. During the summer of 1928, he made a long road trip south through the cotton fields of Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia in an old Ford station wagon that served as his kitchen, bedroom, and workshop. While the artist decried the racism he saw in the South, his cariacaturized figures, such as the anonymous black field hands and the white pipe-smoking foreman in this painting, often elicited criticism and embroiled the artist in public controversy. #thomashartbenton #benton #cottonpickers #oilpainting #temperapainting #regionalism #regionalist #metropolitanmuseumofart #workinart #workinartweek
