American, 1898–1969
Follow

Named one of the “World’s Ten Best Artists” by then-popular Look magazine in 1948 and renowned for his anguished, searingly bold imagery, artist and activist Ben Shahn protested against social injustice and honored ordinary people in lithographs, paintings, photographs, and public murals. For Shahn, art was a powerful tool for sociopolitical commentary and for urging and effecting change. As he asserted: “If we are to have values, a spiritual life and a culture, these things must find the imagery and interpretations through the arts.”
