A painter, teacher, graphic artist, and photographer, Ben Shahn was devoted to the figurative tradition and was one of the more significant social critics among painters of the 20th century.

He was born in Kaunus, Lithuania on September 12, 1898, and emigrated with his family to the United States in 1906.  From the ages of 15 to 18, Shahn was apprenticed to a New York lithographer.  In 1919, he enrolled at New York University, completing his studies at the City College of New Y (showing 500 of 5529 characters).
