Thomas Eakins: Photographer
PHILADELPHIA, UNITED STATES • The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) • 19 October 2016 - 29 January 2017
|This exhibition of over 60 photographs, sculpture, and paintings by Thomas Eakins (1844-1916) touches on many issues of representation, gender, and sexuality that are as relevant today as they were provocative when they were made. Known primarily as a painter, Eakins taught and exhibited at PAFA, and is inextricably linked with its history, and with innovative artistic practices in 19th century America.|
The show aims to tell the story of how Eakins' early adoption of the new art and science of photography changed Eakinsí career, as well as the course of American figurative art. In 1985, PAFA acquired a collection of over 600 photographic prints and negatives from one of Thomas Eakinsí students, Charles Bregler.
