Blue snow on the Battery in wintertime

No one paints New York City in the winter, in all of its blue and white harshness and beauty, quite like George Bellows.


Looking at “Blue Snow, the Battery,” from 1910, you can just feel the chill coming off New York Harbor, and how much colder it must be for the men standing in those shadows.
