THE MASTERS: THE ART STUDENTS LEAGUE, Last Two Days


LAST TWO DAYS !!!

Today, and tomorrow, December 1, 2018, are the last two days of the three-part extravaganza: The Masters: The Art Students League, Teachers and Their Students. It takes place at three New York City locations: The League, Gallery 511, and Hirschl & Adler.

Works by Peggy Bacon, Will Barnet, Thomas Hart Benton, Isabel Bishop, Dorothy Dehner, Ben Shahn, Harry Sternberg, and so many others are included. We were pleased to be able to play a small part.
 
Peggy Bacon, The Swiss Restaurant, 1918, drypoint




Bacon’s Swiss Restaurant, 1918, depicts a popular ‘hangout’ near the League. Judging by the coats and hats, it was a cold day, just a hundred years ago.

BEN SHAHN born on this day in 1898


Ben Shahn (1898-1969) was born on September 12.


Below is his Head of a Welder from 1940. It is a gouache on paper cut to isolate the head. No doubt it was used to position the head properly in the making of a mural or large painting.
