Arty Tuesday: George Bellows & Mrs. T.

Last month, I saw the Bellows exhibit at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC.

I was surprised by the number of portraits in the collection as I didn’t really think of Bellows as a portrait painter. Here’s my favorite:

Mrs. T. in Cream Silk, No 1 by George Bellows (1919)

The accompanying information said that the subject was wearing her wedding dress from decades before.
