New Deal Art: "Fish Cannery"
Above: "Fish Cannery," a water color and pencil on paper, by Carlus Dyer, created while he participated in the New Deal's Treasury Relief Art Project, 1937. Mr. Dyer was born in Springfield, Missouri, in 1917, and may still be alive today (see, e.g., here and here). If so, wouldn't it be great if someone did an oral history interview with him, focusing on his recollections of the New Deal art programs. Image courtesy of the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
