Common man, mythic vision : the paintings of Ben Shahn by Susan Chevlowe( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ben Shahn (1898-1969) has long been renowned for his Social Realist paintings of Depression-era America. Equally striking, however, are Shahn's extraordinary later works, which reveal a more introspective style as well as the evolution of a new allegorical and mythical pictorial language. This book combines beautiful reproductions of Shahn's art with essays by leading experts on his life and career to present a survey of his powerful and engaging mature style. The volume is published in conjunction with a major traveling exhibition organized by The Jewish Museum, New York, to commemorate the centenary of Shahn's birth
Ben Shahn : an artist's life by Howard Greenfeld( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ben Shahn's presence as an artist through several decades of American life was as pervasive as that of any other painter of his time. Beginning in the thirties, he created bold and powerful paintings of often controversial subjects, and in particular his portraits of Sacco and Vanzetti caused a storm whenever they were exhibited. After working as an assistant to Diego Rivera on the ill-fated Rockefeller Center mural, he began creating his own arresting murals - in Washington, New York, and New Jersey - which are among the finest such works ever painted in this country. He also excelled as a photographer as one of the distinguished group known as the FSA photographers, which included Dorothea Lange and his close friend Walker Evans
