Praise for George Bellows
"Upbeat prose, photographs, and reproductions of George Bellowsâs paintings provide an insightful homage to the urban artist and athlete. Burleigh places readers right in the moment."
ÂPublishers Weekly, starred review
ÂThe bookâs excellent reproductions of Bellowsâ work will excite young readers and budding artists. A fine portrait of an artist not on everyoneâs radar but whose work can be readily understood and appreciated by youngsters.â
"Veteran biographer Burleigh breathes a great deal of vitality into Bellowsâ short but significant life and career. Accompanied by Bellowsâ striking and powerful works, this is an artist bio that, like its subject, packs a punch."
"Burleigh tells Bellowsâs story with immediacy and with a firm grasp of his audience, striking the right balance of broad stroke and detail. Burleighâs admiration of his subject comes through loud and strong and infectiously. And there are handsome reproductions of Bellowsâs work...This impressive book captures the connection between the man and the world he observed during his short life. A new generation of young urban observers will be grateful."
ÂNew York Times
"This is a beautifully illustrated biography of painter George Bellows. Bellows found his inspiration in the working class, including the gritty night life of the city... Burleigh adds to the interest of the story through direct quotes that are well-documented."
ÂLibrary Media Connection
"Burleigh is an enthusiastic and adept tour guide through Bellowsâs New York milieu. Crisp reproductions coordinate closely with the text, so readers will easily connect..."
