Lecture: George Bellows and New York: Love of WinterExecutive Director David F. Setford speaks on artist George Bellows (1882-1925). From 1907 to 1915, Bellows produced at least one painting with snow as the subject every year, once saying, "I must always (sic) paint the snow at least once a year." These vigorous and robust paintings, created mainly in New York City as he wandered around looking for modern day subject matter, were at least as important to his development as his well-known boxing paintings, but have often been forgotten. The lecture examines the locales as well as the inspiration for Bellow's winter paintings. Presented in association with the exhibition New York, New York! The 20th Century.
This event is one of a series of monthly lectures (May through October 2011) at the museum and is part of a collaboration between The Hyde Collection and Art in the Public Eye's Third Thursdays Glens Falls Art Walk
