ABOUT THE ARTIST
Thomas Eakins (1844-1916)
Eakins is said by some to be the greatest of all American artists, but he was largely unappreciated in his lifetime. He had a deep interest in science, medicine and how things work. He liked color and movement, but most of all he was interested in shadows he used them to create space. He was influenced by the Spanish realists like Diego Velázquez and Jusepe de Ribera. He exploited the effects of light and dark to produce a feeling of drama. Artist’s Quote: The big artist keeps an eye on nature and steals her tools.
