One possibility is the Thomas Hart Benton museum here in Kansas City, which consists of his house and studio, preserved exactly as they were at the time of his death, about 1976 or thereabouts.

Subject: Thomas Hart Benton illustrations

I inherited a copy of Life on the Mississippi published in 1944 by The
Heritage Press.  There are copyrights by The Mark Twain Company and by
The Limited Editions Club.  The volume is illustrated by Thomas Hart
Benton.  I would like to make use of these illustrations in the videos I
am producing of chapters from the book.  I am ignorant of how to contact
whomever may still own the rights to the illustrations.  Actually, I've
never engaged in this kind of thing before, I've merely been a reader.
These are non-commercial videos meant only for my own enjoyment and the
enjoyment of anyone who wishes to view the same.

Incidentally, my readings are actually from the version of the book
provided by the Gutenberg Project - the same version reprinted in The
Oxford Mark Twain.  My videos already contain illustrations from this

Thanks for any assistance
