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 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Shahn

A Christmas Tile

So many people liked this tile I'm thinking of doing a similar one. The original was given as a present a long time ago.
