THOMAS HART BENTON (1889-1975) (after)

Homecoming—Kaw Valley.
Offset lithograph. 300x372 mm; 11 3/4x14 5/8 inches, full margins. Signed in pencil, lower right. 1951.

A very good impression of this scarce print.

Benton created this print as a fundraiser for Kansas City flood victims in 1951. According to Fath, he made it "In a special edition for the members of the Congress of the United States and sent it to them on October 13, 1951." This was also used as the cover image for the November, 1951, issue of the New Republic. Fath page 6-7.
