Take One Picture
1 July 2019 (by Angela Gilmartin (Mrs Gilmartin))
Grimes Dyke really enjoyed Take One Picture week in school. Inspired by the painting 'Men of the Docks' by George Bellows 1912.
Bellows arrived in New York in 1904 where he found rich subject matter in the lives of poor workers in the booming metropolis. Here, day labourers await jobs on the docks of Brooklyn on a grey winter morning. The towers of Lower Manhattan rise in the distance.
