DESCRIPTION

At the time of his death at the age of 42, George Bellows (1882–1925) was regarded as one of America's greatest artists. In his brief life, he created an extraordinary body of work totaling approximately six hundred oil paintings, hundreds of drawings, and almost two hundred lithographs. This landmark loan exhibition will highlight his achievements in all media. Comprising some 140 paintings, drawings, and lithographs, the exhibition invites the viewer to experience a dynamic and challenging period—the first quarter of the twentieth century—through the eyes of a brilliant observer. The exhibition is the first retrospective of Bellows's career in more than three decades.
