M o . (API - Thomas Hart Bon- iui:. worid-rt'iloWiiod ;:i'Usi whose themes of American history often reflected his lifelong love affair with his home state of Missouri, died here Sunday nighi. He was 85. Benton was taken to a hospital h e r e by a m b u l a n c e , and a hospital spokesman said he was dead on arrival at s p.m. PST. A family friend quoted the artist's widow, Rita, as saying Benton had just completed a mural Sunday which had been commissioned by the Country M u s i c F o u n d a t i o n i n Nashville. Tenn. The friend said Benlon returned to his studio behind the home after dinner. Mrs. Benton found him on the studio floor where he apparently had fallen from a chair. When Benton began the work last spring, shortly after his birthday, he said it would be his last mural. A NATIVE of Ncosho, M o . , Benton h a d also lived for many years in New York and for years had a seaside home at M a r t h a ' s Vineyard in Massachusetts. He and h i s widow, R i t a , spent their summer there last year as usual. Benton was known for works \vith American historical themes. Among his b e s t - k n o w n p a i n t i n g s were "Modern America," p a i n t e d w i t h Mexican iniiruiisi Clumente Orcwco for the New School for Soc i a l Research in New York: "Boomtown," now at the Rochester Museum, and "Cotton Pickers," at the Metropolitan in New York. Fourteen years ago he struck up a relationship w i t h Harry S. Truman when he was commissioned to paint a mural in the I n d e p e n d e n c e , M o . , library housing the former president's papers. The m u r a l , titled "Independence and the Opening of the West," dominated the l o b b y of the Harry S. Tinman Library. TRUMAN and Benton, who s h a r e d a similar . affection for Missouri, became fast friends. The artist finished a portrait of a pensive former president, surrounded by books at an easy chair, shortly before Truman's d e a t h Dec. 2fi, 1H72. T r u m a n o n c e called Benton "the best damned painter in America." Benton, l i k e Truman, was known to be outspoken, and he often warred with the people who were most likely to buy his pictures. In the 1920s and 1930s, Benton a n d f e l l o w M i d westerners John Steuarl Curry and Grant Wood became practitioners in the 1920s and 1930s of a school of art called Regionalism that mirrored the American spirit of the times: a concentration on America itself.
