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

9 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
The social and the real : political art of the 1930s in the western hemisphere( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the 1930s, American artists, such as Ben Shahn, developed a mode of representation generally known as Social Realism. Presenting an assessment of Social Realism, this book contends that the radical, 'realistic' art of the Americas during the 1930s was shaped as much by hemispheric exchange as by emulation of the European avant-garde
Ben Shahn's New Deal murals : Jewish identity in the American scene by Diana L Linden( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lithuanian-born artist Ben Shahn learned fresco painting as an assistant to Diego Rivera in the 1930s and created his own visually powerful, technically sophisticated, and stylistically innovative artworks as part of the New Deal Arts Project's national mural program. In Ben Shahn's New Deal Murals: Jewish Identity in the American Scene author Diana L. Linden demonstrates that Shahn mined his Jewish heritage and left-leaning politics for his style and subject matter, offering insight into his murals' creation and their sometimes complicated reception by officials, the public, and the press."--Publisher's website

The New Deal murals of Ben Shahn : the intersection of Jewish identity, social reform, and government patronage by Diana L Linden( )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation discusses the eight murals that Ben Shahn (1898-1969) created under the auspices of the New Deal. It begins in 1933 when the federal projects were initiated and ends with Shahn's mural for the Social Security building in Washington, D.C., completed in 1942. This work examines Shahn's murals within the sociopolitical history of the New Deal, foregrounds the social events that Shahn depicted, and problematizes the issue of Jewish identity within the context of public murals. Shahn proposed eight mural projects, completing four; in addition to Social Security (1940-42), he painted a mural for the Jersey Homesteads, New Jersey on immigration and the labor movement (c.1936-38), Resources of America for the Bronx Central Post Office, New York (1938-39), and the Four Freedoms for the Woodhaven Station, New York post office (1939-41). Officials rejected Shahn's satirical Prohibition Era for the Central Park Casino, New York (c.1934), his The Great State of Wisconsin, for the planned community of Greendale, Wisconsin (c.1937), and his Four Freedoms, submitted to the St. Louis, Missouri post office competition (1939). Officials canceled his project for Riker's Island Penitentiary, New York (c.1933-35) as Shahn began work on site
