Homespun America: Regionalist Prints from the Indiana University Art Museum’s Collection

March 18 to May 18, 2008

This exhibition, a complement to the Benton show, highlights a small selection of prints from the museum’s large holding of works by artists associated with the Regionalist aesthetic, which emphasized a modern realist style and populist, folksy subject matter. Special attention is paid to the Regionalist “triumvirate”: Thomas Hart Benton, Grant Wood, and John Steuart Curry—whose works helped to popularize this quintessential America style during the 1930s and 40s.
