Caricature of George Ade and Orson Collins Wells

Painting of George Ade and Orson Collins Wells by William Herman Schmedtgen, 1912. Schmedtgen insinuated that Ade and Wells were homosexuals by putting a red bowtie on Wells and the Chicago Athletic Club symbol on his fan. The painting hung at the all-male Chapin & Gore Tavern in Chicago for many years.
