George Bellows (1882-1925)

book cover image

"Published in conjunction with a major retrospective exhibition, this new book documents the artist's career from his youthful meteoric rise to the largely unexplored period" of his life just before his early death in 1925. Bellows painted the world of the early 20th Century.  He lived in New York and created images of the scenes around him, paintings of "street children, tenements, boxers, urban and rural landscapes, seascapes, war scenes from World War I, and family portraiture".  Bellows was also an "accomplished graphic artist contributing to periodicals such as "The Masses" and "Harper's Weekly" where his work "addressed a wide array of social, religious, and political subjects".
