I was met by this amazing skyline when out in Richmond recently. It felt like the snow was upside down.
George Wensley Bellows was a hugely talented American realist painter who arguably captured better than anyone else the life of the city working classes. He may have died at 42, but his phenomenal way of looking at regular people and the landscape around them, will live on. I saw his retrospective in The Royal Academy last year and not having heard of him earlier, I was utterly mesmorised by his depictions. Here are my favourites.
