A wealth of research material has grown up around the collection of works by Thomas Eakins (1844–1916) given to the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 1929 and 1930. Over the years, generous contributions of Eakins scholars nationwide have augmented the material, which has been reorganized and catalogued here. Complete with 450 bibliographical entries, it is the most definitive and up-to-date guide to sources on this preeminent American artist. Also included is a record of some 277 exhibitions during Eakins' lifetime.
