Thomas Eakins Day, Part 1 - Nude Panels by the Number

Thomas Eakins took dozens of photos of his student models in sequences of poses to be used as studies for drawing and painting.  Over the years, some editors (including myself) have cropped these panels into various arrangements for various reasons.  Today we look at some favorites sequenced 1 to 5.  Number 1 is the Maestro himself, who wasn't at all afraid to be photographed nude.


  1. Beautiful...oh to have worked with him..

  2. Despite his controversiality, Thomas Eakins exudes strong sexual energy, all the more attractive in a 19th century setting. Thomas Eakins has helped me orgasm numerous times.
