Item Details
Description
Thomas Hart Benton (1889-1975)

Forward Pass

1972

The lithograph published by Associated American Artists in an edition of 250 prints on BFK watermarked paper is signed by Thomas Hart Benton in pencil below the image lower right and listed in the artist's catalog raisonne as Fath number 85.

Benton's comments in Fath read: I have an overgrown crony in Kansas City named Dutt who is a football fan with a box at the Kansas City football stadium. He is six foot seven inches tall and therefore a real matching companion.* One October afternoon he took me to see the Kansas City Chiefs play. I had never seen a 'pro' football game and I was fascinated with the spectacle and with the game itself. Using Dutts influence (he has a lot of that in K.C.) I got permission to attend the Chiefs practice sessions where I could get a close-up view of football actions. I made sketches there and from there a sculpture in bronze. The litho was made from the sculpture.

Image size 19.75 x 13, sheet measures 24 x 18 inches.

Condition
Very good to fine condition, the full untrimmed sheet, not laid down, very clean, no damage, stain, puncture or repair.
