Description It was in Paris, in 1926, that Shahn first read Rilke's novel. He was just beginning to doubt his own traditional style of painting and was skeeing for more personal expressions, when he found in Rilke the same searching, probing, and slow emergence of forms, characteristic of his own experience.
