Jackson Lee Nesbitt

1913 – 2008

Ozark Farmer

Jackson Lee Nesbitt (1913-2008). A student of Midwestern Regionalist Thomas Hart Benton, Nesbitt was born in McAlester, Oklahoma. He studied at the Kansas City Art Institute in the 1930s and early 1940s, where he worked with Benton and Regionalist painter John de Martelly. As a student and a young artist, he created numerous paintings and prints largely in the American Scene tradition of familiar, everyday subject matter.  In the 1950s, as interest in Regionalism waned, Nesbitt turned to commercial art. Much later, in the 1980s, in the midst of a nationwide renewed appreciation of art from the Depression years, he returned to printmaking and created a number of lithographs with imagery inspired by previous works and by his life in the Midwest. Shown is a lithograph on paper signed in the lower right margin, ”Jackson Nesbitt.” The work is titled in the lower left margin, “Ozark Farmer” and numbered 75/250. Ca., 1930. 12.5” x 10.5”
