Description
Love and Joy about Letters by Ben Shahn

Grossman, New York, November 18, 1963

Born in Lithuania, Ben Shahn immigrated to the United States in 1906 as a child. After elementary school, he was apprenticed to a lithographer, but studied biology at New York University. Shahn later changed course, studying at the Art Students League and, in 1925, at the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere in Paris. Upon return in 1929, he worked as a photographer for the Farm Security Administration in 1935 - 1938. Shahn experimented with silk screening and created magazine illustrations and advertisements.
