Saturday's theme is a bit of a holdover from yesterday's art series in that it's about models, although that's where the similarity ends. I have another photo of these three models in the same studio which is attributed to Thomas Eakins. This one, however, came with a note that mentioned Thomas Anschutz, who was also from Philadelphia. Well, for once, I wasn't lazy and looked it up. Anschutz is apparently one of the models, as he was a student of Eakins who became a prominent artist.
So this is quite probably an Eakins photo of three of his handsome students.
