Art on Sunday: Drought Stricken Area

Alexandre Hogue (1898 – 1994)

I'm sort of in a Steinbeck mood this weekend -- I'm working through Travels with Charley, as you may have guessed from yesterday's post -- so here's a work by American artist Alexandre Hogue, who made his name painting Dust Bowl scenes in the 1930s. I imagine the Joads would have found this scene very familiar.
