Published in conjunction with a major retrospective exhibition (opening at National Gallery of Art, Washington, in June 2012, then travelling to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, in November 2012, before moving to Royal Academy of Arts, London, in March 2013), this book documents the artist's career from his youthful meteoric rise to the largely unexplored period preceding his death. Mentored by Robert Henri, leader of the Ashcan school in New York in the early part of the twentieth century, Bellows skilfully and audaciously painted the world around him: street children, tenements, boxers, urban and rural landscapes, seascapes, war scenes, and family portraiture. He was also an accomplished graphic artist whose illustrations and lithographs addressed a wide array of social, religious, and political subjects. Nearly 200 reproductions from every stage of Bellows' career are accompanied by a series of essays that offer a substantial reconsideration of the artist, drawing comparisons to Manet, Goya, El Greco, and Picasso, and tracing his rise to the emergence of other American greats such as Edward Hopper. A chronology and two appendices devoted to Bellows' personal record book and his published illustrations for periodicals such as The Masses and Harper's Weekly reveal the full range of his remarkable artistic achievements. Authoritative and exhaustive, this groundbreaking book firmly establishes Bellows' unique place in the history of both American art and Western art in general.Biographie de l'auteur :
