George Bellows: Painter with a Punch!

Robert Burleigh. Abrams, $18.95 (48p) ISBN 978-1-4197-0166-5
Upbeat prose, photographs, and reproductions of George Bellows’s paintings provide an insightful homage to the urban artist and athlete who found inspiration in unlikely places. Burleigh places readers right in the moment as Bellows (1882–1925) seeks subjects to paint, which include the slums on New York City’s Lower East Side, illegal boxing matches, and construction sites: “He has his own goal: to wrestle a picture from the chaotic scene, to capture the wild energy of the moment!” Each reproduction is accompanied by thought-provoking analysis and insight into New York history. Bellows emerges as an artist of striking diversity. Ages 8–12. (June)
