"The Barricade" by George Wesley Bellows. 1918, oil on canvas. In the collection of The Birmingham (AL) Museum of Art. Depicts an incident during the 1914 invasion of Belgium wherein German soldiers used townspeople as a human shield. Bellows presented the victims as nudes to show their vulnerability and recalling depictions of martyred saints from the history of art. Because Bellows had not witnessed these events firsthand, the artist Joseph Pennell charged that he had no right to paint them. Bellows replied that he was not aware that Leonardo ad Vinci had “had a ticket to paint the Last Supper.”
