[Gallery label text, 2007] "Autumn Brook" contains the archetypal elements present in Bellows's finest Woodstock landscapes, including water, rolling hills, mountains, animal life, vegetation, and a dramatic sky. Bellows's choice of vivid colors celebrates the magnificence of nature and the artist's joy at finding himself immersed in it. The active brush strokes prove his ability to paint with a controlled sense of abandon.

[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.

In 1911, accompanied by Henri, George Bellows made the first of several trips to Monhegan Island off the coast of Maine. On his last visit, in 1914, he was accompanied by his wife and daughter Anne, who are the two figures on the left of this drawing. The figures on the right are young neighbors, but the central figure has not yet been identified. While this drawing has an anecdotal quality in its depiction of friends and family, the artist's interest in composition, or the arrangement of forms, can also be seen in the heavily-drawn diagonal lines and the diamond grid in the paper that he used. Bellows used this drawing as a preliminary study for a similar painting that is owned by the Gallery, which underwent technical analysis at the Williamstown Art Conservation Center to determine what changes the artist may have made to the painting before his death in 1925.

Wherever he taught, he gathered around him eager and enthusiastic students who benefited from his instruction. He moved to New York in 1900 and taught at William Merritt Chase's school for a few years. In 1909, he established his own school, and also taught painting at the radical Ferrer School established by former Rochesterian Emma Goldman. Although a member of the National Academy of Design, Henri actively promoted non-juried exhibitions and the work of younger, less traditional artists. Dictums such as "Know what the old masters did…They made their language. You make yours. All the past can help you" gave his followers the confidence to paint in their own way. During the 1920s, Henri lived in Ireland and painted a young boy named Tom Cafferty, who was the subject of this painting and a number of others. Characteristically, Henri painted him in a very loose and colorful style, with energetic brush strokes. [Gallery label text, 2003]", "Dedication" : "Gift of Mrs. Granger A.

Myers recorded the unglamorous, yet commonplace aspects of city life, as did fellow painters John Sloan and Robert Henri, members of The Eight or the Ashcan School. However, his vision of the city's poor never evoked a sense of wretchedness: "Why catch humanity by the shirt-tail," he said, "when I could see more pleasant things?" Though tame to us today, paintings like Sunday Morning were considered progressive, even "revolutionary" when they were painted, because of their subject matter. However, when it came to exhibiting with The Eight, Robert Henri didn't think that Myers's work was forceful enough. As a founder of the innovative American Association of Painters and Sculptors in 1911, Myers helped to pave the way for the watershed 1913 Armory Show in New York City, the exhibition that introduced European modernism to an enthusiastic but occasionally bewildered public.

With just a few strokes of his brush, Everett Shinn has recreated an overcast winter street scene filled with mood and mystery. Sullivan Street is in Greenwich Village, around the corner from Shinn's studio on Waverly Place and near Washington Square Park, whose leafless trees can be seen beyond the buildings on the right.

Enters used dance, mime, acting, costumes, music and sets to bring to life an array of characters from different times and foreign countries. Miss Enters was also an artist and exhibited paintings and drawings at The Memorial Art Gallery in November of 1936 and she performed in Rochester at least once in 1946. Raised in Milwaukee, Enters moved to New York City in the early 1920's, where she enrolled in a life class taught by John Sloan at the Art Students League. Enters and Sloan met again several years later after a performance she gave in 1925. Sloan, Robert Henri and others were so impressed with Enters' performance that they created a committee to promote her work as they had done decades earlier for dance legend Isadora Duncan.

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."

By 1909, Sloan was an active member of the Socialist party and used his art to shine a light on the equally noble and interesting lives of the lower classes. Marrying style to subject, Sloan’s loose brushwork and dark colors epitomize the Ashcan style. [Gallery label text, 2007] In 1909, many artists and collectors would not have considered a Chinese restaurant to be an appropriate subject for a painting. The artist, John Sloan, was part of a group of artists labeled “Ashcan” painters early in the century, because of their frequent choice of the less genteel aspects of urban life. Now, Sloan’s paintings are recognized as major documents of American life and this painting, like many others on view in this installation, is often loaned to museums in the United States and overseas. Also called “The Eight,” Sloan and his seven colleagues exhibited together in a landmark show at Macbeth Gallery in 1908 in response to the jurying system of the National Academy and its more traditional members that frequently excluded less conventional artists. It’s amusing to consider that in 1943, when the Encyclopedia Britannica collection was being assembled, that a painting created in 1909 would be considered contemporary. However, it may have been included in recognition of the fact that John Sloan painted his contemporary world as he saw it. In fact, in 1943, the freshness of Sloan’s style and the timeless nature of the scene painted thirty-four years previously did not seem out of keeping with many works from the 1940s. And Sloan was still quite an active artist at this point in his life. [Gallery label text, 2006] As recommended by his mentor, painter Robert Henri, John Sloan derived most of his subjects from close observation of his surroundings. Such was the case on the night of February 23, 1909, when he went out to eat at a restaurant on Sixth Avenue, not far from Herald Square. He wrote, “I saw a strikingly gotten up girl with dashing red feathers in her hat playing with the restaurant's fat cat. It would be a good thing to paint. I may make a go at it.” Characteristically, Sloan waited for a bit before undertaking the work, and on March 15 wrote, “I started a memory painting of the Chinese Restaurant girl I saw some four weeks ago." His intermittent working style is revealed by a diary entry on March, 18, in which he described not only working on the painting, but going to the restaurant again to “refresh my memory of the place.” In 1944, the painting joined a corporate collection of outstanding contemporary art formed by the Encyclopedia Britannica. In 1951, the Memorial Art Gallery acquired fourteen paintings from the collection – this painting and work by Thomas Hart Benton, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Stuart Davis, among others.

He moved to New York City at Henri’s urging. On November 5, 1907, he wrote: “Election Day… saw the noisy trumpet blowers, confetti throwers and the 'ticklers' in use - a small feather duster on a stick which is pushed in the face of each girl by the men, and in the face of men by the girls. A good humorous crowd, so dense in places that it was impossible to control one's movement.” The location, Herald Square at 34th and Broadway, was close by the New York Herald Building as well as Macy's. The elevated railroad tracks loomed overhead, increasing the suggestion of noise and activity in the scene. Sloan included Election Night as one of his entries in the 1908 exhibition at Macbeth Gallery. In his estimation, it was “…one of my best things. So that I felt happy in the evening, that good all over feeling that only comes from satisfaction in work - the real happiness, the joy of accomplishing or thinking that one has accomplished, which amounts to the same thing.” [Gallery label text, 2003]", "Dedication" : "Marion Stratton Gould Fund", "Copyright_Type" : "Public Domain", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "Painting", "Creation_Place2" : "American", "Department" : "", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "Originally paid from R.

Because so many of the artists, among them Sloan, had difficulty exhibiting their work due to their choice of subject matter and their idiosyncratic styles, they mounted their own exhibition in 1908 at Macbeth Gallery in New York City and were subsequently referred to as The Eight.
