42. Reading more about that Thomas Eakins painting...

I found it interesting that William Rush probably never used an actual nude model in the carving of his statue, but Eakins was adamant that human anatomy be studied, as a teacher. The Realist. Made his point and gave Rush's name notice in our country.

(and there's a George Washington carving hiding in the back there, behind the woman sewing. It's a statue that Rush carved after "Water Nymph and Bittern".)

Thanks for all of these, CTyankee! I've never been so intent on looking at nekkid people before, ha! Fun searches and I am still amazed (and looking) at all of Whistler's works; all I ever knew him for was his mother!
