Woodstock, NY: The Woodstock Artists Association and Museum (WAAM) presents the lecture George Bellows: Painter in New York on Saturday, November 10 at 2:30 pm. The talk, presented by artist and curator Ronald Netsky, is one in a series focusing on artists in the WAAM Permanent Collection. This Speakers in the Humanities event is free and made possible through the support of the New York Council for the Humanities, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

From vibrant paintings of Manhattan to lively landscapes and portraits done in Woodstock, George Bellows (1882-1925) captured New York with an exuberance indicative of what he termed “emotional realism.”Bellows was regarded as one of America’s greatest artists when he died at the age of 42 from a ruptured appendix. His early fame rested on his powerful depictions of boxing matches and gritty scenes of New York City’s tenement life, but he also painted cityscapes, seascapes, war scenes, and portraits, and made illustrations and lithographs that addressed many of the social, political, and cultural issues of the day.

George Bellows is represented in the WAAM Permanent Collection by several drawings and lithographs, including the artist’s War Series from 1918 that depicted German atrocities in Belgium.

Bellows is the subject of a comprehensive retrospective at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC, November 15, 2012 through February 18, 2013. The WAAM is holding a bus trip to see the exhibition at the Met on the opening day, Thursday, November 15. Space is limited. For information call  845-679-2940 .

Ronald Netsky, Professor of Art at Nazareth College, served as co-curator of Leaving for the Country: George Bellows at Woodstock, an exhibition that originated at the Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester, New York, and traveled to the Terra Museum of American Art in Chicago, as well as other venues. He recently curated the exhibition Woodstock Prints: Past and Present that ended November 3 at the Woodstock School of Art.
