La Première Pose

February 18–April 13, 1975

Howard Robert's nineteenth century American sculpture, La Première Pose, was the focus of an exhibition in the Armory from February 18 to April 13, installed by Richard G. Dorment, Assistant Curator of Painting before 1900. Also on view were works by Thomas Eakins and William Rush. The exhibition was inspired by the publication of a Museum Bulletin featuring an article by noted art historian David Sellin about the efforts of nineteenth century Philadelphia artists to study the nude model in the face of criticism from the conservative art establishment.
