Photography Grids ValueM.Webb
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 PhotographyMary Webb
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?
