Shelter Drawings-Henry Moore 1898-1986

Henry Moore's studio was bombed out early in World War II, so he started to do drawings of the people seeking shelter from London bombings in the Underground stations.
They are done in paint, ink and wax resist.

My Favorite Artists-Doris Lee 1905-1983

A contemporary of my fathers, born the same year, died the same year. I remember growing up knowing her my father must have known her. The art community was small then. Wish he was still around, I have so much to ask him.

Here she is and some of her paintings.

Ben Shahn's Art

My Favorite Artists: Ben Shahn 1898-1969

Ben Shahn: painter, illustrator. graphic artist, photographer, writer and teacher. Part of the Social Realism movement (my father's paintings also followed this group...the style of the '30's..when things were tough)

I've always loved his paintings and drawings. He painted mainly in egg tempera which gave his work a beautiful clear color. I'm a fan. Check him out
