George Bellows’ Swan Lake

Swans in Central Park
The National Gallery of Art’s George Bellows show is full of surprises. Based on the artist’s affinity for raucous boxing matches, I expected more testosterone. I didn’t expect so many quiet landscapes and portraits of women.

I liked this painting of swans in Central Park best, not least because it echoed an Instagram pic I snapped in Central Park a week earlier.
