Youth & Beauty @ the Cleveland Museum of Art

Thomas Hart Benton, Self-Portrait with Rita, 1922

A couple of weeks ago we ventured to the Cleveland Museum of Art to see Youth and Beauty, a collection of art from America's roaring '20s.  The works on view included liberated, modernized portraiture and urban-industral landscapes from the Jazz Age with an emphasis on youth and industry's exciting potential, and changing notions of the values that define beauty.
