Details

Inspired by Robert Henri’s insistence that artists should ‘make pictures from life’, the Ashcan group rejected Impressionism and academic realism in favour of a bold style that expressed the harsh reality of America’s urban poor in the early 1900s. Giving particular attention to twelve of George Bellows’ images, this introduction explores his work in the context of the wider movement.
