Is it Mr Eakins or is it Mr Thomas. Was Eakins his first name, or was it a double-barrelled name?

Ok, having done my research, it's Mr Thomas Eakins, which makes sense. Painter, sculptor and photographer born in 1844 and who died in 1916.

Even I, not anywhere near well-educated in art, recall him for those incredible nudes so far ahead of their time. Still, we poor humanities majors do pick up a few scraps here and there. What is interesting to me is that he made such an impression when I was in school in the sixties.

Perhaps not unfair to mention, though Eakins' talent is a long way beyond titillation. Dont want to stick my artistic foot in my, er...mouth, but the paintings are damned impressive. Let's leave it at that.
