Jackson Lee Nesbitt

Price: $2500.00

Jackson Lee Nesbitt - (AM 1913-2008) – Auction Barn – Lithograph, 1989, ed. 250, 12 5/8 x 17 1/8, signed, titled and numbered in pencil. This piece is in excellent condition.

This is considered to be the artist’s best print, certainly his most prominent and also graces the cover of the catalog raisonne. It is illustrated in Rural America, published by the Spencer Museum of Art.

Said the artist, who was a student of Thomas Hart Benton: “I think this picture is one of my best designs. I spent a lot of time getting the lighting right and putting some rhythm into it. A strong sense of design – now that is very characteristic of Benton. I wanted to do a picture of the barn ever since Tom (Benton) and I had visited there on one of our sketching trips…. The real barn is located outside of Independence, Missouri where they auctioned off milk cows and pigs.”
