Ben Shahn’s desire to create narrative art that focuses on social and political justice have come to exemplify social realism and the art of social consciousness. From his questioning religious teachings as a youth in Lithuania and up through the end of his life, Shahn remained true to his vision. He never failed to create artwork to draw attention to those for whom life was a struggle, and he did so with dignity rather than pathos or sentimentality.
