“The Lord is My Shepherd” featured in Whitney’s video series

A while back, we wrote about the enormous influence that Martha’s Vineyard had on Benton. (Read the post.)  Today, we came across a video from educator Laura Ridloff discussing The Lord is My Shepherd, one of his most significant Vineyard paintings.  The painting features George and Sabrina West, a deaf couple to whom Rita introduced Benton in 1922.

The video is produced by the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the painting is part of their collection.
