About This Item

Austin: University of Texas Press, 1989. First Edition. Octavo (23.5 cm). Tan cloth boards; dustjacket; ix, 237pp. Presentation copy from the author to Shahn's widow Bernarda Bryson Shahn, with lengthy holograph note laid in, dated May, 1985. Fine copy. From the library of Ben and Bernarda Bryson Shahn, with estate label tipped on to front endpaper. A detailed and scholarly investigation of Shahn's life and work during the Cold War period; probably the best critical study of his work after Rodman's 1951 biography. In her note, the author states that she is "pleased with the way it turned out, although...as with any book there are some things I would do differently if I were to do it over again...I hope I have given a sense of the strength of Ben's commitment to both his political & aesthetic ideals during this period.
