Ben Shahn in New York.

Over 80 years ago the great artist Ben Shahn painted "The Passion of Sacco and Vanzetti," a depiction of the slain men who were electrocuted allegedly for killing two men during the robbery of a shoe factory in Braintree, MA.

Anyway I saw this photograph today from Ed Koch's funeral that reminded me of Shahn's best work.
