Stag at Sharkey's

As part of its centennial celebration this year, the Cleveland Museum of Art is putting a spotlight on some of the most famous pieces in the collection.  Among them is George Bellows’ 1909 depiction of a rowdy, backroom boxing match, called “Stag at Sharkey’s”.  For more than a century, art scholars have praised Bellows’ skill in capturing the raw energy of a no-holds bout.  But, to get a better insight into the reality of this image, ideastream Senior Arts reporter David C. Barnett turned to a different set of critics --- a trio of boxers.
