Product Description
George Bellows Book of Postcards
In 1904 George Bellows (1882–1925) left his hometown of Columbus, Ohio, to pursue a career as an artist in New York City. Bellows soon won acclaim for his innovative and often provocative paintings of boxers, the urban landscape, and the impoverished inhabitants of the Lower East Side. Over the course of the next two decades—until his sudden and tragic death from peritonitis at age forty-two—he created a body of work in many mediums and so diverse it defies categorization. In addition to painting genre scenes, cityscapes, seascapes, war subjects, and portraits, Bellows became an accomplished graphic artist whose illustrations and lithographs addressed an array of contemporary social and political issues. His art was further enriched by his experiments with numerous color and compositional theories.

Along with other multitalented personalities of the time, including his close friend and mentor, Robert Henri, and the photographer and gallerist Alfred Stieglitz, Bellows helped establish New York as a dynamic and influential center for modern art. He exhibited often and widely at national and international venues, actively participated in the major arts organizations of his day, and played an integral part in most of the era’s landmark cultural events, including the famous Armory Show of 1913.

Bellows succeeded in capturing the complexity and diversity of modern American life during the first quarter of the twentieth century. Often associated with the urban realism of the Ashcan School, Bellows’ prodigious achievement distinguishes him as a leading talent in the history of American art. Winslow Homer (1836–1910) and Thomas Eakins (1844–1916) are his eminent predecessors, his colleague and friend Edward Hopper (1882–1967) his most important successor.
