Edited by William Innes Homer

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [in PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"Long awaited, this valuable collection of letters presents Thomas Eakins in his own words at a formative stage of his career, offering a fascinating record of triumphs and struggles as well as a lively display of the skills, interests, confident opinions, and complex personality of a great American artist."--Kathleen A. Foster, author of Thomas Eakins Rediscovered

"These letters give a fuller view of Thomas Eakins during his formative years as a student in Europe than we have ever had--his developing artistic understanding, his psychological drives, his friendships, his peculiarities and obsessions, and his views about Paris, its culture, and the works of art he saw while living there. This book makes a major contribution."--Elizabeth Johns, author of Thomas Eakins: The Heroism of Modern Life

"This invaluable book provides a useful and entertaining account of the early life and thoughts of one of nineteenth-century America's most significant artists. The hundreds of Eakins's letters gathered here contain a wealth of information about his youthful thought processes, opinions, and artistic development."--Martin A. Berger, author of Man Made: Thomas Eakins and the Construction of Gilded Age Manhood
