THOMAS EAKINS. Ed. by John Wilmerding. National Portrait Gallery, London, 1993. Published in the U.S.A. in association with Smithsonian Institution Press, Washington, D.C. 212 pp. with 171 ills. (61 col.). 31 x 26 cm. LC 93-85709 ISBN 1560983132 In English.
An extensive study of Eakins's complex artistic vision and the significance of his contributions to American art, this catalogue features lengthy individual analyses and fine pictorial documentation of 44 oils and five drawings produced by the renowned painter (1844-1916) from 1860 to 1906, including many of his penetrating portraits of family members, artists, doctors and prominent figures in the cultural life of Philadelphia. Four scholarly essays examine the interplay between Eakins's personal experiences and his artistic achievements, discuss his commitment to realism in the context of trends in European art of his time, explore the role of photography in his work and chronicle changes in the critical reception of his oeuvre.
