Ashcan Painters

On 3 March the National Gallery in London opens a small, free exhibition with a long title: An American Experiment: George Bellows and the Ashcan Painters (as in Dustbin?). George Bellows's The Big Dory (1913) is one of these paintings "never before seen in the UK". There'll be only 12 of them on display, so this is an exhibition to visit during your lunchtime or if passing. Click the title link for more about George Bellows and his Ashcan friends: William Glackens, George Luks, John Sloan and their teacher Robert Henri.
