In Benton Spruance, the artist, the man, Lloyd Abernathy wrote: ‘Many works were also given over to the dynamics and perils of modern transportation… “I am completing ‘Traffic Control’ for this reason,” [Spruance] reported to Zigrosser, “that aided by you, I’ve put on stone three subjects not being done by anyone else – football, automobiles and fencing.”
