Dempsey Through the Ropes

The title of this drawing is Dempsey Through the Ropes and was made by the artist George Bellows in 1923. The media used to make the drawing was lithograph crayon on paper. The artist uses value to make the two boxers stand out by putting them against the dark background of the arena. I like this picture because it shows the exact moment the boxer in the ring won the fight.
