Summary: BEN SHAHN offers a comprehensive look at the art work of one of the leading social realists of our time. The book includes pieces done in the 1930s depicting the effects of the Depression, urban decay, labor strikes & poverty. Brilliant posters created for the Office of War Information during World War II describe Shahn's work in the 1940s. The book explores the artist's post-war transition from a social realism to a... "personal realism," employing allegory & symbolism. Through discussions of his political views, his struggles to maintain artistic integrity, as well as through selections of Shahn's own writings, the author weaves a compelling portrait of the man & his work. BEN SHAHN includes an extensive bibliography.
