Thomas Pollack Anschutz 1951 to 1912, born in Newport, Kentucky and grew up in Newport and Wheeling, West Virginia.

The Ironworkers' Noontime, Anshutz's most well known painting, depicts twenty-or-so workers on their break in the yard of a foundry near Wheeling, West Virginia. The piece was exhibited at the Philadelphia Sketch Club in 1881.

"Art historian Randall C. Griffin has written of it: "One of the first American paintings to depict the bleakness of factory life, The Ironworkers' Noontime appears to be a clear indictment of industrialization. Its brutal candor startled critics, who saw it as unexpectedly confrontational—a chilling industrial snapshot not the least picturesque or sublime." It is now in the collection of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco."
