  • Thomas Hart Benton

  • Linen backed

    Linen backing is the industry standard of conservation. Canvas is stretchered and a sheet of acid free barrier paper is laid down. The poster is then pasted to the acid free paper using an acid free paste. This process is fully reversible and gives support to the poster. A border of linen is left around the poster and can be used by a framer to mount the poster so that nothing touches the poster itself.

    The price of this poster includes linen backing.

    Small text reads: "This Painting has been made available in the Public Interest by Abbott Laboratories, North Chicago, Ill.

    From the national archives Power of Persuasion web site "Artist Thomas Hart Benton believed that it was the artist`s role either to fight or to "bring the bloody actual realities of this war home to the American people." In a series of eight paintings, Benton portrayed the violence and barbarity of fascism. "The Sowers" shows the enemy as bulky, brutish monsters tossing human skulls onto the ground" Power of Persuasion
