Benton Goes To The Met

City Activities with Dancehall from America Today, 1930–31.
Thomas Hart Benton's mural cycle consists of ten panels. Egg tempera with oil glazing over Permalba on a gesso ground on linen mounted to wood panels with a honeycomb interior.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art received this gift from AXA Equitable...

Blogger's Notes
The paraphrased text is from artdaily.com but egg with oil and honey has never looked so enticing.
Thomas Hart Benton was a man of many murals, and then some.
