Symposium: “Bellows and the Body—The Real, the Ideal, and the Nude”

This full day of papers and a round-table discussion, from European and US academics and curators, explores how George Bellows and other Ashcan School artists approached the body. This symposium is held in conjunction with the exhibition Bellows and the Body: The Real, the Ideal, and the Nude.

Papers will consider:

  • Censorship
  • The role of the artist’s own body
  • Connections to popular illustration and radical magazines
  • The relationship of life class and studio work to paintings made in the street
