Feinstein, David (1911-1983)
(From biographical material provided by his son) David Feinstein was born on the Lower East Side of NYC in 1911, and was orphaned at an early age when both of his parents died of TB. In the late twenties and early thirties he was offered a scholarship by a charitable organization, and studied at the Art Students League. Between 1935 and 1943, he worked for the WPA's Federal Art Project, sharing studio space for a time with Ben Shahn and Zero Mostel. After the war, he tried to make a living as a children's book illustrator and cartoonist for labor union publications, but wasn't able to support himself through art-making, and in the ensuing years he was (publicly) inactive as an artist. He died in 1983.
