Description

Tobacco farm landscape consisting of a fence in the foreground receding on one side in to the background, scattered trees and a large tobacco barn. The curves in the linocut suggest a tremendous amount of energy and movement. Note: The printmaker recalled that he sketched this barn when he traveled to Dixie, Kentucky, to attend the funeral of Billy Q. Dixon. "When I returned to art school that fall, I took the sketch with me and showed it to Thomas Hart Benton, head of the painting department. He made some suggestions about composition which resulted in the print coming out with Benton Influence. One of the few times that this happened."
