Art Chronicles: George Bellows

I meant to write about the excellent – and surprising – show of American painter George Bellows’ work at the Royal Academy, but the moment came and went and now the show is due to finish this coming weekend.

So this is just to urge anyone within reach of London and interested in art or painting or American culture to go and see the exhibition while you can.

Michael Carlson has written about it insightfully and comprehensively on his blog.

The Royal Academy website has a nice introduction and a link to a good video.

  1. Yes! I’ve seen it twice now and loved it both times. I didn’t know very much about him before the RA show – I saw a couple of his paintings in the MET in New York last year – but this show is fascinating and a revelation.
