Synopsis: Book by Susan Danly, Cheryl Leibold
From Library Journal:
Is controversy over the depiction of nudity in art photography a recent development? Apparently not, as evidenced by a fascinating catalog of the rarely published Charles Bregler collection-a volume devoted to the art, scientific, record, and candid photography of Philadelphia artist and teacher Eakins. His studies of motion have generally received more attention than his artistic photographs, but a stable of Eakins's scholars has set this oversight to rights through an examination of his work, his collaborative efforts with students, and the output of his wife, Susan MacDowell Eakins. The very high quality illustrations include 16 tritones, 52 duotones, and 173 photographs. A handsome and scholarly offering that is highly recommended for American art and photography collections; for more general references on Eakins, see John Wilmerding's Thomas Eakins (LJ 2/1/94) and William Innes Homer's Thomas Eakins: His Life and Art (LJ 2/1/93).

Book Description The Smithsonian Institution Press, Washington, DC, 1994. Softcover. Black and illustrated paper wraps. 236 pp. appx. 250 bw plates. "The first catalogue of the Eakins photographs in the Pennsylvania Academy's Charles Bregler collection, which includes about three-fourths of Eakins's photographic output. The book describes the entire collection of 648 images, reproducing 173 black-and-white photographs, 52 duotones, and a portfolio section of 16 tritones. This is the first book to place Eakins's photographic works (and those of his circle) within the context of the transitional era between 1880 and 1900, when photography moved from the realm of commerce to that of art." (dj of hardcover edition) Includes portraits, scientific photographs, animals, landscapes, and nudes. The introduction surveys the photographic scene in Philadelphia in the 1800s while the essays in the main body of the book explore the elements of fantasy, sexuality, and science in his work.
