Exhibition Label
The son of a waiter in Depression-era Brooklyn, Jerome Liebling sympathized with “the folk who had to struggle to stay even,” and recognized unheralded individuals in his work. Liebling’s preoccupation with the human condition led him everywhere from a home for the blind to a slaughterhouse. He confronted difficult subject matter, usually avoided in mass media, with compassion.
