Summary:
Sixty-four letters from Maurice Becker to Ben Goldstein, apparently in response to Goldstein's inquiries related to organizing an art exhibition with some emphasis on the work of artists associated with MASSES and LIBERATOR, in which Becker describes some of the art works he would be willing to sell. The political circumstances and intent of the art works is occasionally detailed. Most thoroughly described in this context is a series of lithographs produced by Becker when he was imprisoned in Leavenworth as a conscientious objector in 1918.
