George Bellows: Frankie, the Organ Boy

Frankie, the Organ Boy: George Bellows

George Bellows, who was touted as one of the most successful and famous of the American Realists, painted Frankie, the Organ Boy in 1907.

He paints the boy with bold and thick brushstrokes, as can be seen in details of the hair, face, and hands. The gaze of the boy is active and his expression is one of undiluted curiosity.

George Bellows’s Frankie, the Organ Boy is in the Nelson-Atkins Museum in Kansas City, Missouri in the United States.
