The Powerful Hand of George Bellows
Today @ the Milwaukee Art Museum
Through March 23, the Milwaukee Art Museum will display its latest exhibition, The Powerful Hand of George Bellows, a collection of over 50 rarely seen drawings and prints from the famed American artist on loan from the Boston Public Library. In the early 1900s, Bellows became renowned for his vivid (and frequently gritty) depictions of street life in New York City. Some of his most infamous pieces documented brutal boxing matches.
