Bellows is famous for his sporting scenes, especially boxing. He did a series of images dedicated to billiards. Indoor Athlete, first stone and Indoor Athlete, second stone deal with the head of the billiard player studying a difficult shot involving three balls. George Bellows was familiar with the billiard rooms downtown as he played in the National Arts Club and the Players Club. Robert Henri wrote George Bellows a letter in 1920 “I am avoiding the National Arts billiard room because I do not think it fair to myself to destroy my health by playing in that air before you come, I will reserve all my vigor to use up on playing with you.”Signed in pencil lower right and signed by the printer lower right "Bolton Brown imp." 20th Century Subjects , Sports & Games , Indoor Sports
