The Met is displaying the works of the Ashcan School titan: George Bellows.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art – George Bellows.
Jack Dempsey vs. Luis Ángel Firpo, September 14, 1923, The Polo Grounds, NYC
Watch Dempsey knocked out of the ring by Firpo at about 1:50:
I love George Bellows, but then we share the same hometown. 🙂
If you’re on the east coast the show is a must see! Especially for a Columbus gal who loves George Bellows 😉
As tempting as an impromptu trip to NYC sounds, it is not in the works between now and mid-February! 🙁 However, if I really want to see a bunch of his paintings (and lithos) all I have to do is head home to C-bus. The main art museum there has the largest public collection of his paintings in the world. 🙂
