Description  
At the beginning of the 20th century, Bellows started to make an impact on the New York art scene. His work was considered crudely executed, but at the same time brave and honest. His urban scenes are dedicated to the working class people of New York and their daily hardships. Included in his repertoire, was the representation of fishermen as well as sailors, ships and docks. There is a dark threatening atmosphere, with brightly lit human figures who are muscular. The viewer can imagine the conversations, the smell, the feel and the daily lives of the men that are depicted.
