Thomas Eakins

$ 2.99

Thomas Eakins is now widely acknowledged as one of the most important American artists, though during his lifetime he was a controversial figure whose work received little recognition. He worked exactingly from life, choosing as his subject the people of his hometown of Philadelphia. He produced several hundred portraits, usually of friends, family members, or prominent people in the arts and sciences, carrying the tradition of nineteenth century Realism to perhaps its highest achievement. His art was never compromised by the need to flatter patrons or sitters, and honesty was his only policy. His work served as an impetus for the burst of realism in American painting during the early years of the twentieth century, especially in the work of George Bellows and his circle. Delphi’s Masters of Art Series presents the world’s first digital e-Art books, allowing readers to explore the works of great artists in comprehensive detail. This volume presents Eakins’ complete paintings, with concise introductions, hundreds of high quality images and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
