Thomas Eakins (1844-1916)

Thomas Eakins, an American realist painter, photographer and sculptor, was born in Philadelphia and remained there most of his career.   It seems his preferred subjects were medical situations and male nudes but he employed a wide diversity of themes.  His works include formal portraits and cowboys, action figures and sports ranging from sculls to baseball.   Most of his paintings are oils but it is clear he mastered watercolor.
