American Scene

   The “American Scene” was the name given to the artistic movement of the 1920s and especially the 1930s that saw a concentration on American themes and subjects rather than European modernist images. It included regionalist painters John Steuart Curry, Thomas Hart Benton, and Grant Wood, as well as such social realists as Edward Hopper and Ben Shahn.
