He exhibited with The Eight in 1908, and chaired the Armory Show in 1913. By 1914, he was devoting all of his time to painting, and espoused subjects like this one, colorful depictions of Americans at play.

[Gallery label text, 2007] In the summer of 1914, painter George Bellows convinced his wife, Emma, to travel to Monhegan Island off the coast of Maine along with their young daughter, Anne. There, he hoped to paint more of the stunning seascapes he had worked on so successfully in past years. Evening Group depicts Emma and Anne on the left, the artist in the middle, and two neighbor children on the right. Based in New York City during much of the year, Bellows found that the harsh beauty of places like Monhegan Island provided him with subjects that contrasted dramatically with his acclaimed urban scenes. He first visited the island in 1911 in the company of his teacher and mentor, Robert Henri, and wrote enthusiastically to Emma: “The Island is only a mile wide and two miles long, but it looks as large as the Rocky Mountains. It’s three times as high as Montauk [Long Island] and all black and grey rock. Beautiful pine forests and wonderful varieties of all kinds…” In another letter, he lamented “my head is full of millions of great pictures which I will never have time to paint.” [Gallery label text, 2005]", "Dedication" : "Marion Stratton Gould Fund", "Copyright_Type" : "Public Domain", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "Painting", "Creation_Place2" : "American", "Department" : "", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Related_Children" : [ { "Rel_Obj_ID" : "3002", "Rel_Obj_Title" : "Study for "Evening Group"" } ], "Curator" : "Note that the online catalogue raisonne lists the inclusion of this work in a 1926 exhibition at the Los Angeles Museum of Art, but an exhibition of that date that might contain this work could not be found.", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/47.13_A1.jpg", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/47.13_A1.jpg", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/47.13_A1.jpg", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/47.13_A1.jpg", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "12371", "Image_Type" : "digital image", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/42bellows1.tif", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/42bellows1.tif", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/42bellows1.tif", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/42bellows1.tif", "IsPrimary" : "0", "_SurrogateID" : "23028", "Image_Type" : "digital image", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "CMYK tif image from Monroe Litho for Seeing America catalogue.
