Thomas Eakins/photography
The other posts are very old (2001) on this topic, but maybe someone is still interested. I think that Eakins was as fascinated by photography as by painting since he was seeking to transform the three dimensional world into the two of a flat canvas. One of the photographers he worked with and who was a friend was Louis Husson. Eakins painted his portrait, which is owned by the Natiional Gallery of Art in Washington DC. I believe Husson was born in 1845, making him 71 when he was a pall bearer at Eakins funeral in 1916.

Photography Grids Value
Does anyone believe that the recent Xray revelation that Eakins projected photographs onto his canvases and traced the image using a very detailed grid reduces the status, genius, or value of this American master's work?
Please post responses to the question to the AskART bulletin board to encourage a public discussion of the issue.

Eakins and Photography
Can anyone submit a complete list of the photographers with whom Eakins studied and worked? I am particularly interested in the earliest teachers of photography in the NY and Philadelphia area. I discovered that Carl Hecker is one of the first photography teachers at the Cooper Union, according to their archives. Was exposure to the chemicals used in the photographic processes, a factor in the artists' deaths?
