Passion For JusticeStreaming Video - 2005
A young Jewish immigrant, Ben Shahn fearlessly recorded in paint and on film a broad swath of America's social landscape, from the Great Depression to the Civil Rights Movement. This program presents the biography of an artist who fused political awareness with modernism, whose works were as likely to appear on the cover of Time as in the Museum of Modern Art. Rare television and radio interviews recorded before Shahn's death in 1969 complement a retrospective of his paintings, sketches, and photographs. Also featured are interviews with Shahn's biographer, Howard Greenfeld; his widow, Bernarda Bryson Shahn; and daughter Judith Shahn.
