The Tumbling, Tumultuous Thomas Hart Benton









In Tom and Jack: The Intertwined Lives of Thomas Hart Benton and Jackson Pollock, author Henry Adams speaks of Benton's technique of using the bump and hollow - creating the rhythmic hills and valleys that we see so strongly in his work.

They say that all art is self-portraiture...

Wow. Just look at the bumps and hollows of this great face...
