Book Description Harvard University Press, Cambridge, MA, 1957. Hardcover. Presumed first edition/first printing. From Wikipedia: "Ben Shahn (September 12, 1898 March 14, 1969) was a Lithuanian-born American artist. He is best known for his works of social realism, his left-wing political views, and his series of lectures published as The Shape of Content. Shahn mixed different genres of art. Shahn used both expressive and precise visual languages, which he coalesced through the consistency of his authoritative line. His background in lithography contributed to his detail-oriented look, Shahn is also noted for his use of unique symbolism. While Shahn's "love for exactitude" is apparent in his graphics, so too is his creativity. Evocative juxtapositions characterize his aesthetic. He intentionally paired contrasting scales, colors, and images together to create tension. His art is striking but also introspective. He often captured figures engrossed in their own worlds. Although he used many mediums, his pieces are consistently thoughtful and playful." Good in fair dust jacket. DJ worn, torn, soiled, and chipped. Minor page soiling noted.
