Art History Professor Wolff Wins New Book Award

The Chicago Center for Literature and Photography on Jan. 7 named University of Maine Associate Professor of Art History Justin Wolff’s book Thomas Hart Benton: A Life one of the “Best of the Best” in its Year in Books issue. Reviewer Jason Pettus called the book a well-done biography that offers an appropriate examination of the life of Benton, an eccentric American painter and muralist who died in 1975. Wolff’s book was published in March 2012 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux and will be released in March in paperback.
