Benton received a few awards and continued to make a lasting impression unto the art community until his death on January 19, 1975, at 85 years old. He was working on a mural for the Country Music Hall of Fame of Nashville, Tennessee. This work, entitled The Sources of Country Music, remains unfinished and unsigned.
I decided to write my report on Thomas Benton because my friend is really into art. Benton is one of her favorite artists, and I would like to be able to talk with her about his works. I appreciate that Benton has many various sketches about daily life and animals. I enjoy the refreshing depictions of realistic drawing and paintings. I am not a huge fan of modern art or abstract art because I can never quite grasp the meaning of it, although that is the point of those types of art.
