Vivid Image of Greed, “Human Barricade”

My Traveling Photographer friends might be interested in Wikipedia’s latest project which they promote on this page. This Painting is by George Bellows. I remember seeing his “Stag Night at Sharkey’s” my family’s Encyclopedia as a child, and thinking–in my child thoughts–that Bellows was truly immortal because he was presently introducing himself to me at that moment through his painting. Van Gogh had that immortal spirit, but I like Bellows better. At least tonight.
