Joe Jones made this painting of an American farm while the United States was suffering from the Great Depression and an eight-year drought plagued the Southern Plains, an area that includes parts of Kansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, Texas, and New Mexico. The drought began in 1931, turning what was once fertile farmland into a dust bowl where nothing would grow. Winds swept across the plains and dust storms darkened the sky, leaving layers of dust everywhere, even inside the buildings.
