THOMAS EAKINS

THOMAS EAKINS was an American realist painter, photographer, sculptor, and fine arts educator. He is widely acknowledged to be one of the most important artists in American art history.
Eakins produced a number of large paintings which brought the portrait out of the drawing room and into the offices, streets, parks, rivers, arenas, and surgical amphitheaters of his city.
These active outdoor venues allowed him to paint the subject which most inspired him: the nude or lightly clad figure in motion.
