Thomas Eakins

(b Philadelphia, PA, 25 July 1844; d Philadelphia, 25 June 1916).

American painter, sculptor and photographer. He was a portrait painter who chose most of his sitters and represented them in powerful but often unflattering physical and psychological terms. Although unsuccessful throughout much of his career, since the 1930s he has been regarded as one of the greatest American painters of his era.
