George Wesley Bellows

American, (1882–1925)
George Wesley Bellows was an American realist painter, known for his bold depictions of urban life in New York City. He is considered one of the most acclaimed American artist of his generation. Bellows was a student of Robert Henri, who at the time was teaching at the New York School of Art. While studying there, Bellows became associated with Henri's "The Eight" and the Ashcan School, a group of artists who advocated painting contemporary American society in all its forms. Bellows' urban New York scenes depicted the crudity and chaos of working-class people and neighborhoods, and satirized the upper classes.
