The Blind Accordion Player (Ben Shahn)


The Blind Accordion Player is a really interesting painting . It shows emotion and a real since of artistic expression. The composition of the painting is well put together. the player's hands in the foreground appear bigger than usual in comparison to the rest of his body. But it seems like the accordion and his hands are closer to our eyes than the rest of his body. The player looks passionate about his notes and the pale colors in the painting give the impression that the player is playing sad notes or just a slow song.
