Today his works hang in museums. During his life, Benton, preferred to hang them in saloons, where ordinary people could appreciate them in congenial surroundings. A fierce defender of the aesthetics of realism, Benton took on the art establishment and railed against abstraction. His reputation suffered the consequences as his star rose, fell and rose again. While Benton failed to stem the tide of modernism, his influence can be seen in the works of his student, Jackson Pollack.
