Thomas Hinton

Arkansas Artist Thomas Hinton (1906–1975), whose painting is on the cover of One Summer in Arkansas, lives on in the hearts and homes of the children and grandchildren of Karlton and Flora Kemp and Nancy Anderson Kemp, as well as in galleries and homes in Arkansas and throughout the country. He captured the unique beauty of Arkansas as few artists have. Trained at the Art Institute of Chicago, he has exhibited at the Corcoran Gallery, the National Gallery of Art and the Art Institute of Chicago and during his lifetime received numerous awards for his work. I'm grateful to his niece Betty Miller Jones and her daughter Valorie Jones for permitting use of the image on the cover of the book. The original Hinton oil painting "Return from Sunday School" hangs in my daughter's home in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. More about Thomas Hinton at
