See how children have been inspired by Men of the Docks
As part of our annual Take One Picture programme, primary schools from across the UK have responded creatively to George Bellows's 1912 painting, 'Men of the Docks'.
Depicting workers on the docks of New York's frozen East River, the skyscrapers of Manhattan and a vast ocean liner towering in the background, Bellows's painting was chosen for the cross-curricular themes and subjects which can be explored: from cities and 20th-century New York, to immigration, working animals, and the riverfront as a place of work.
Featuring works by children from 37 different primary schools, the exhibition showcases the richness of children's creative responses to Bellows's painting – from model ships and polluted cityscapes to family interviews and letters home.
