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 HarpersThe 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....... Judith's crisp personalized images have been popular at Cove Gallery and for many Cape Cod customers for over 20 years.
