"The Bicyclers" by Thomas Hart Benton
Now for something completely different. This painting from the early sixties shows a happier less angry THB. In fact this painting is lovely. Yes lovely. The bay, the boats, the hills, the sky, the road – all lovely. In over a year of doing this blog I have never used that word before. I have really mellowed. Anyway, I like this picture because I would like to be in this picture. In fact, the two cyclists bear a certain, but not uncanny, resemblance to G and VNAY. More on this tomorrow.
