Title: Thomas Eakins: A Motion Portrait
Movie ID: VT6274
Movie Number: 6274
Description: The life of Thomas Eakins was both heroic and tragic. A brilliant portraitist who painted his subjects as he saw them, an outspoken teacher of art who demanded respect for the entire human body, Eakins flaunted the conventions of proper Philadelphia society in the Victorian era. During his life Eakins sold only 25 or 30 paintings; it was not until years after his death in 1916 that a new generation of scholars and critics recognized Eakins as one of America's greatest painters.

My favorite thing about LSSU is the diversity of people you can find, despite the fact that it's a small campus! [ more ]
