Ben Shahn

A bald man with a furrowed brow holds an open book to the viewer. The book's pages open to an illustration of a distressed animal. Writing in blue takes up the lower portion of the print and reads: "I have the right to believe freely. To be a slave to no man's authority. If this is heresy so be it. It is still the truth to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. I cannot...will not...recant. Here I stand. No man can command my conscience."
