George Bellows, "Emma and her Chidren," Oil on Canvas, 1923
I went to the Metropolitan Museum the other day and saw the wonderful George Bellows exhibition. I truly was blown away! I had really only known George Bellows through his boxing paintings but he had also painted beautiful landscapes, city scenes and portraits. He painted from his life at the time. It was one of the best exhibitions I had seen in a long time. If you get the chance, go and take a look. It closes on February 18, 2013.
