The High Museum of Art in Atlanta announced that it will mount a major exhibition dedicated to Regionalism—an American art movement that rose to prominence in the 1930s—this winter. Acting in response to the rapid industrialization of the United States, Regionalist artists created scenes that focused on rural life. Cross Country: The Power of Place in American Art, 1915-1950, opening February 12, will include works by some of the movement’s most notable figures, including Thomas Hart Benton and Grant Wood.
