Course detail: OSH040 - American Regionalism: Art from the Heartland
The three most noted artists of American Regionalism will be the focus of this class: Thomas Hart Benton from Missouri, John Steuart Curry from Kansas, and Grant Wood from Iowa. How did these artists with their anti-modernist tendencies take on European abstract art and form a significant, if not major, American art movement? Their major works will be examined along with the influences of their home states and region, an area that most in the class call home.
