Artwork Resource Packet: <em>Love of Winter</em> by George Wesley Bellows

Artwork Resource Packet: Love of Winter by George Wesley Bellows

In this work we see a lively crowd skating on a frozen pond in Central Park. George Wesley Bellows skillfully contrasted the background of the composition, an expanse of blue-gray hills and trees, with the boldly colored and vigorously rendered figures in the fore and middle grounds. This teaching packet includes an essay, discussion questions, activity ideas, a glossary, and an image of the artwork.
