George Bellows opens

Today the Royal Academy of Arts in London opened George Bellows (1882-1925): Modern American Life, the first retrospective of works by this American realist painter (CLICK). Shown is Forty-two Kids (1907) depicting slum children bathing from a dilapidated dock in the filthy waters of New York's East River. The title became ironic, because bellows died at the age of 42. I've already previewed this worthwhile exhibition (CLICK). You'll find it in the Sackler Wing of Galleries, Burlington House, admission £10 adults, £9 silver surfers. CLICK for a BBC slide show.
