With the growth of early film and it’s presentation as an art form, artists began to strive to create living portraits and dynamic action scenes.

This lecture was presented as part of the Sunday at the Met program on George Bellows, which took place on January 27, 2013. The exhibition George Bellows is on view November 15, 2012 – February 18, 2013 at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
