BEN SHAHN, Gouache on cardboard

Lot 0082 Details

Description
BEN SHAHN (1898-1969) Title: Untitled, Medium: Gouache on cardboard, Date: c. 1960, Size: 14.25 x 10 in. (Attrib.) Was an American artist and member of the Social Realist movement. His expressive figurative paintings, murals, and posters were inexorably tied to his lifelong activism and pursuit of social justice within his left-wing political beliefs. Frequently featuring scenes of the inequality and hardships faced by the working classes in the United States, Shahn unflinchingly portrayed the important political events of his day, as seen in his The Passion of Sacco and Vanzetti (1931-1932), a painting about the controversial conviction of two Italian-American immigrants who were sentenced to death in 1927. Born Benjamin Shahn on September 12, 1898 in Kaunas, Lithuania, he studied at the National Academy of Design in New York, NY and traveled throughout Europe during the 1920s. Upon his return to the United States, he assisted Diego Rivera in 1933 for the painting of his Man at the Crossroads fresco in Rockefeller Center before being commissioned to create his own at the Federal Security Building and the Bronx Central Annex Post Office. The artist died March 14, 1969 in New York, NY at the age of 70.
