New York: Abbeville Press, 1992. First Edition, Second Printing. Hardbound. VG/VG. Black with color illustrated DJ. Gray cloth with Black stamped cover and spine titles. 276 pp., profusely illustrated in color and bw. Oversized and heavy. A rich source of information and illustrations on American realist Thomas Eakins (1844-1916), whose "willful independence as both artist and teacher often entangled him in controversy. His many battles with a hidebound Establishment have led previous writers to romanticize him as a martyr of American art. [This] revisionist study of Eakins's career -- based both on long years of research and on newly discovered visual and documentary sources -- knocks off the artist's halo without diminishing the brilliance or the imporatnce of his art. The myth-making that has long obscured this intensely private artist is cleared away to provide a much-needed re-evaluation of his strong-will character and profoundly satisfying art." (dj).
