Thomas Hart Benton (1889-1975)
Departure of the Joads (1939)
Stone lithograph on RIVES watermarked paper; this lithograph is not pencil signed. Titled 'Departure of the Joads', signed in the image lower left, circa 1939, the signed lithographs were published in an edition of 100 prints. At the time of printing, it was common to pull some prints before the final limited edition was produced and signed by the artist. This image appears as Fath number 34 in that catalog, printed on Rives watermarked paper as the signed editions were.
Image measures 13 x 18.5, sheet is 16 x 23.5, frame is 23.75 x 28.5 inches.
Good condition, the full sheet with deckle edges, not laid down, some tattering at the margins, small tears and a two-inch tear lower right quadrant, considerable margin foxing, margin stain.
