Summary:
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.
