Elsie, Emma and Marjorie, Second Stone
George Wesley Bellows
Eugene and Elsie Speicher and Robert and Marjorie Henri were close friends of George and Emma Bellows’s and appear often in lithographs that Bellows made in 1921. Here the women enjoy an intimate conversation on the settee in the Bellowses’ sitting room, while the husbands converse in the background. One of the most talented of Henri’s students, Bellows quickly became a popular member of the Henri circle. Speicher (1883–1962) was another Henri student who had become a successful portraitist.
