Thomas Eakins Panel Sets

The great American artist, photographer, and social pioneer Thomas Eakins used photography as an aid to teaching painting as a money saving alternative to paid models.  Using mostly his students and himself as subject material, he produced photographic panel sets of men in a variety of poses.
We begin today's series with this impressive bearded  young student.
