Artist biography

Ben Shahn, born in Lithuania, immigrated to the United States in 1906 at the age of eight with his mother and two brothers. Shahn’s upbringing in a traditional Orthodox Jewish family in Brooklyn exerted great influence on his artistic career. Largely inspired by his own experiences as an immigrant, Shahn depicted scenes of injustice urging social and political reform to safeguard American citizens at large.
