In 1905, shortly after Bellows arrived in New York to study painting, Robert Henri arranged a lecture at the New York School of Art by Thomas Anshutz, an instructor at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. In attendance were a number of artists who would form the core of the urban realists led by Henri-among them George Bellows (standing, third from the right toward the upper right corner), John Sloan, and William Glackens. Sloan recorded the event in this etching.

On close examination, it is possible to see a caricature of Bellows with the initials GB. According to artist Rockwell Kent, who is also included in this etching, "We used to paint all over the walls of the studio, and Sloan shows some of those paintings in his etching. The one bearing the initials 'GB' is probably someone's caricature of Bellows at that time."
