(The Estate of the Artist)

Judith Shahn (1929-2009) was born in Paris to the artist Ben Shahn and his wife, Tillie Goldstein. She lived in New York City and spent summers in Truro, Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

 As a small child Shahn painted alongside her father and as a young artist she took life classes with the painter Moses Soyer. She attended Olivet College, Michigan, and graduated from Mexico City College in 1949. She was a painter, draughtsman, printmaker, and graphic artist. Her drawings appeared in The New Yorker magazine from 1958 to1992, as well as in Harpers, The Nation, Gourmet, and others.

 Starting with a show at the Gallerie Beatrice Viggiani, Rome, Italy, in 1964, there have been more than seventy one-woman shows of work by Shahn. The Provincetown Art Association and Museum held an extensive retrospective in 1996; their catalogue remains a significant monograph on the artist. Further, in recognition of the artist’s donation of a complete archive of her serigraphs, The PAAM showed Judith Shahn, Recent Gifts to the PAAM, spring, 2011.

The entire show may be seen under Exhibitions at WWW.SUSANTELLERGALLERY.COM
