Item Description: Translate description
Kent Bellows has been recognized as one of America’s greatest masters of American Realism since first exhibiting in New York in 1985. The Nebraska-born artist, whose father was a commercial artist and watercolorist, began his career as a freelance science fiction illustrator in the late 1970s for publications such as Omni and Rolling Stone. He moved into commissioned portraiture and then figurative realism by the early 1980s, reaching national acclaim when he was discovered by the New York art market through Tatistcheff Gallery and then later Forum Gallery in New York. In memory of the artist and his legacy, The Kent Bellows Studio and Center for Visual Arts was established, which provides a creative outlet for high school art students, offering time, space and scholarship opportunities. Kent Bellows work is currently the subject of a retrospective on view at the Joslyn Art Museum. AIR 1988
