Vintage Ben Shahn "In Rooms Withdrawn and Quiet". Ben was one of the most skilled and creative lithographers America has ever known. From easel painting to massive murals, from original lithography to calligraphy, there is no facet of mid-century, modern art in which Shahn has not been monumentally successful.
Ben Shahn was an American Artist born in Lithuanian in the year of 1898. He was well known for social realism. He studied many great European artists who had influence in his art style. Most of his works show his political concerns and uses realism style to convey them. His work, Passion of Sacco and Vanzetti was exhibited in 1932 and received acclaim from many. Now his collections are part of many collections around the world.
