Ben Shahn (1898-1969) enjoyed a long career as a social realist artist and left wing visionary, widely recognized for his murals, paintings, commercial illustrations and photography, he collaborated with Diego Rivera and undertook commissions for the Farm Security Administration. Perhaps his most famous work, the Jersey Homesteads Mural, has also been linked to the Haggadah and the themes of slavery, the struggles of immigrants, deliverance and redemption were important throughout his career.
