One of the most important artists in the history of American Art, George Bellows switched from impressionist art imitations and brought art into the 20th Century by painting hardcore images of tenements, slum dwellers, and good old American boxing matches. His Dempsey and Firpo paintings are the stuff of legend, the pugs rendered like Francis Bacon raw meat hangings bashing the shit out of each other. One of the best art books in my collection, yessir.
