Social Realist

America, 1930's

Social Realism is a form of naturalistic realism focusing specifically on social problems and the hardships of everyday life. The term most commonly refers to the urban American Scene artists of the Depression era, who were greatly influenced by the Ashcan School of early 20th century New York City. Social Realism is a rather pejorative label in the United States, where overtly political art in general, and socialist politics in particular, are extremely out of favor. Ben Shahn, Jacob Lawrence, and Jack Levine are the best-known American Social Realists.
