George Bellows may be best known for his brawny and atmospheric painting of two men engaged in the lively sport of boxing from 1909 titled "Stag at Sharkey's." However, his work covered a wide range of subjects, including cityscapes, war scenes, and tenement life in New York City. This online exhibition complements an in situ exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and it offers visitors insight into his works and artistic intent. The exhibit was organized by a number of partners, including the National Gallery of Art and the Royal Academy of Arts in London. Here visitors can read about Bellows' life and make their way through nine brief areas, including Work and Leisure and Boxers and Portraits. Perhaps one of the most compelling areas is the one that documents his depictions of Penn Station and the Hudson River from 1907 to 1909. Finally, the site also contains information about talks and other events associated with the exhibition.
