Ekphrasis – A Monthly Book Club About Art (for Museum members)
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Tom and Jack: The Intertwined Lives of Thomas Hart Benton and Jackson Pollack by Henry Adams The drip paintings of Jackson Pollock, trailblazing Abstract Expressionist, appear to be the polar opposite of Thomas Hart Benton’s highly figurative Americana. Yet the two men had a close and highly charged relationship dating from Pollock’s days as a student under Benton. Pollock’s first and only formal training came from Benton, and the older man soon became a surrogate father to Pollock. In true Oedipal fashion, Pollock even fell in love with Benton’s wife. Pollock later broke away from his mentor artistically, rocketing to superstardom with his stunning drip compositions. But he never lost touch with Benton or his ideas-in fact, his breakthrough abstractions reveal a strong debt to Benton’s teachings. In an epic story that ranges from the cafés and salons of Gertrude Stein’s Paris to the highways of the American West, Henry Adams, acclaimed author of Eakins Revealed, unfolds a poignant personal drama that provides new insights into two of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. –Amazon.com Led by Michael Panhorst Lunch: Sliced Smoked Beef Brisket over Roasted Corn Succotash, Black-eyed Peas, Tomatoes, and Mixed Greens with an Herb Vinaigrette,…
