Minnie Holsinger, The Farmer's Wife #18, John de Martelly

This is image #18 of my on-going series sharing the pages of the scrap book of Minnie Holsinger, which she collected in the 30s and 40s while she and my Grandfather Charlie Holsinger were saving to buy a farm.
No visible signature, but obviously the work of John de Martelly, BFF to Thomas Hart Benton.

I confess, I find great pleasure in this man’s work. There’s something serene, eternal and sculptural about depictions of farm life, as though he were revealing a mythic truth about human nature.
