Thomas Eakins  - self-portrait, 1902
The generally under-appreciated Eakins is considered by the art world to be one of America’s greatest artists. He sold very few paintings and the ones he gave away often ended up in attics. The public’s enthusiasm for impressionism and the other isms of the time left little attention for Eakins’ representational style. [j]
