The Life Class, First Stone - GEORGE BELLOWS
Medium: lithograph printed on Japan paper
Lithograph printed on Japan paper, 1917, Mason 43 (ii/II), edition 49. 13 7/8 x 19 1/2 in. Signed, titled and numbered in pencil. This is a very fine impression with substantial and possibly the full margins. The condition is very good apart from a thinning of the paper in the lower center margin and also on the right lower corner. Bellows arrived in New York in 1904 and studied at William M. Chase's New York School of Art under Robert Henri. Henri moved on in 1909 and set up classes at 1947 Broadway which is the building Bellows occupied. This is an evening life class and Bellows was omnipresent working to improve his great skills as a draughtsman. Impressions of this outstanding print are found in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Blanton Museum of Art, the Cleveland Museum of Art among others.
