Implementation of a major exhibition that explores the work of American artist Thomas Hart Benton (1889-1975).

The Peabody Essex Museum is organizing "Thomas Hart Benton and Hollywood," the first major Benton exhibition in 25 years. The exhibition will take a fresh approach to this quintessential 20th-century American artist by revealing the important connections between Benton's art and popular movies, as well as how both expanded the role of storytelling in 20th- century America. Benton developed a cinematic style of painting that melded European art historical traditions and modern movie production techniques that he learned while working on silent movie sets in the early 1900s. After opening in 2015 at PEM, the show will travel to the co-organizing institutions: the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art (NAMA), the Amon Carter Museum of American Art (ACMAA), and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).
