Historical Context:
Sam Thal, an American Regionalist painter, printmaker, and sculptor, grew up in New York City and attended the Art Students League, one of the most influential training grounds for generations of artists. He moved to Boston in the early 1920s, where he continued his education at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. During the Great Depression, Thal earned a living as a Works Progress Administration artist and developed teaching plans for the Federal Art Project, which conducted art outreach programs for children and adults in almost every U.S. state. His prints are now in the collections of numerous museums, including the Museum of Fine Arts, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Gallery (Washington), and the Library of Congress.
