George Bellows - American Artist From Art History

Historical Artist - George Bellows (1882 - 1925)

American artist, George Wesley Bellows is mainly remembered for his boxing scenes. These energetic paintings earned him a reputation in 1909, the same year he was elected an associate member of the National Academy of Design. After 1913, Bellows’s work took on social messages and he often depicted urban poverty in his work. In 1916, he took up lithography and spent the remainder of his life as a prolific printmaker. He also began producing portraits and landscapes in the last five years before his death. As Bellows' later oils focused more on domestic life, with his wife and daughters as beloved subjects, the paintings also displayed an increasingly programmatic and theoretical approach to color and design, a marked departure from the fluid muscularity of the early work.
