A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Placing Eakins's photographic works in the context of the transitional era when photography evolved from commerce to art, an exploration of his photographs reveals that he broke new ground in photographic printing and emphasized the nude in innovative ways. UP.

From Booklist:

At first glance, Eakins' luminous and "consummate realist" paintings appear to be calm, dignified, and even clinical, but in fact, they are brilliantly nuanced, moody, and alive with conflict and contrast. Eakins' turbulent career was explored with great candor and detail in William Innes Homer's fine 1992 biography, but this volume's set of essays and lush reproductions further extends our understanding of the relationship between Eakins' personality and his work. Both commentary and plates focus strictly on Eakins' portraits, inspiring discussions that embrace not only Eakins' aesthetics and deliberate defiance of the conventions of portraiture, but also his interpretations of relationships and social mores. Essay topics include the "tensions of biography and art" in Eakins' paintings; how his work relates to the work of his European contemporaries; Eakins' pioneering use of photography; and the critical reception of his work, both during his lifetime and posthumously. The catalog portion covers some 50 works. Donna Seaman
