George Wesley Bellows

1882 - 1925

Fourteen magnificent Bellows paintings adorning the Columbus Gallery of Fine Arts attest to the brilliance of Columbus born artist George Wesley Bellows.

From portraits to prizefight scenes to paintings of river scenery, Bellows captured life on canvas in a style that gained national recognition.

The green and yellow splash of "Summer Night," depicting New York's Riverside Park and moonlit Hudson River painted by Bellows in 1909, is perhaps his most famous.

Bellows died of appendicitis at an early age. His widow, Emma, dedicated her life to promoting his work around the country.
