Join award-winning lecturer Sonia Halpern to learn about American Social Realism and the Depression!

Social Realism was an art movement popular in the United States in the 1930s and 40s. The realistic style focused on social and political issues that directly affected the daily lives of the working class and other oppressed groups during a dark historical period. This slide-illustrated course will examine the movement by discussing its European origins, historical context, stylistic and thematic features, and the famous artists who practiced it, including Ben Shahn and Raphael Soyer.
