Early 20th-century American art saw a focus on urban realism in the paintings of a group of artists which included Robert Henri, John Sloan, William Glackens, George Bellows, George Luks, Everett Shinn, Ernest Lawson, Maurice Prendergast, and Arthur B. Davies, some of whom were part of the Ashcan School. We will explore the various approaches to realism in the paintings of each of these artists. We will also examine the role the 1913 Armory Show and other exhibitions had in exposing the public to their works of art.
