George Bellows

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Upper East Side Friday December 14 2012 9:30 - 21:00
George Bellows (1882–1925) is generally considered the greatest 20th-century American realist after Edward Hopper, but this career retrospective reveals that the comparison between the two has always been an apples-to-oranges affair. While Hopper's métier was a kind of stillness that captured the anomie of urban America, Bellows's work was all about the country's rawboned dynamism—especially in his boxing scenes. This survey provides a much-needed reappraisal of one of American art's giants.
