Mccarthy / Peace. 1968
Artist: BEN SHAHN (1898-1969) Size: 25 x 37 3/4 in./63.5 x 95.9 cm Lincoln Graphic Arts, Inc. When Eugene McCarthy ran for President in 1968 against Lyndon Johnson, his candidacy was based upon his opposition to the war in Vietnam. As a prominent pacifist, Shahn was the perfect artist to create a campaign poster for McCarthy, the patriotically-colored dove promoting peace at last.
