Ben Shahn (1898-1969) has long been renowned for his Social Realist paintings of Depression-era America.

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.

His life was always involved directly with his times, and he was a member of the intellectual community throughout his career, as well as a courageous political activist.
