Mc Craw, Prairie Village, Kansas, by 1973 Gerald Peters Gallery, Santa Fe, New Mexico Acquired by the present owner from the above,circa 1986 Literature Matthew Baigell,Thomas Hart Benton, New York, 1973, n.p., illustrated pl. 199 Catalogue Note Born in Neosho, Missouri in 1889,Thomas Hart Benton was raised in America\’s heartland and rose to prominence as a painter of rural life during the Regionalist movement of the 1930s. Bentondeveloped a strong sense ofnational pride at an early age given the politicized environment in which he grew up. His great-uncle was Missouri's first Senator and his father was a congressional representative who often invited other public figures to their home. Such exposure gave Benton an interest in the American scene that developed into a lifelong theme in his artistic career. Benton's extensive travels, combined with his family's prominence, made him as much a historian as an artist, and as much a nationalist as a regionalist. In its sweeping depiction of the grandeur of the western landscape,Desert Dawnexemplifies Benton\’s distinctive version of this uniquely American style. In the 1950s and 1960s, Benton traveled throughout the American West,exploringthe Great Plains, the Grand Tetons, and the Rocky Mountains.Thesefar-ranging tripsinspired him to explore the visual vocabulary of popular Hollywood Westerns, which were continuing to grow in popularity throughout the nation. InDesert Dawn, Benton's bold tones imitatethe rich saturation and colorful palette of these Technicolor films. Describing the power of color in the artist's later landscapes, the art historian Matthew Baigell notes: "Although these works were painted in his studio, his ability to recapture the clear quality of Western light was remarkable. Combined with his penchant for employing broad contours...this facility enabled him to approximate closely both the poster-bright colors of these upland areas and the sensuous curves of the terrain" (Thomas Hart Benton, New York, 1973, pp. 183, 187). Writing on the importance ofBenton'swestern landscapes from the 1960s, such as Desert Dawn,the scholar Dr. Henry Adams states: "His investigation of the Western landscape culminated in the early 1960s...in these mountain scenes, human activity is dwarfed and almost swallowed up by the grandeur of the landscape" (Thomas Hart Benton: An American Original, New York, 1989, p. 327).
