Trail Riders

Late in his career Benton concentrated on landscapes, many of which were inspired by sketching trips to rural areas.  Although most of these represented farming activities, he was also attracted to spectacular mountain vistas like the one depicted in Trail Riders.  The painting was inspired by a 1964 trip to the Canadian Rockies that Benton took with his good friend the Kansas City attorney Lyman Field.
