Trained in abstract art, Hal Holoun eventually shifted to landscape paintings as he was fascinated with the interplay between earth and sky. Most of his paintings take place at dusk or dawn as that's when the colors are most intense. Hal has been featured in American Arts magazine, and his work is found in both private and corporate collections nationwide.
Thomas Hart Benton was the son of a Missouri congressman. He grew up traveling on the campaign trail and left home in 1907 to study art at the Art Institute of Chicago and Academie Julian in Paris. He later returned to Missouri to create watercolors of local residents. Some of Thomas' pieces were controversial, making him a well-recognized public figure. When he passed away in 1975, he left behind a body of work that's known as one of the most sweeping chronicles of twentieth-century American culture.
