Eye candy.

Miss Van Buren
by Thomas Eakins (1844-1916)
c. 1886-90 (130 Kb); Oil on canvas, 113.1 x 81.3 cm (44 1/2 x 32 in); The Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C.

Eakins is regarded by most critics as the outstanding American painter of the 19th century and by many as the greatest his country has yet produced. Most of those opinions were formed before the Dogs Playing Poker movement hit, however.

She doesn't look as happy as Tom and Katie below..

Does a picture really speak a thousand words?

What is the difference between painted and posed?

I love Eakins.

Pushing for Rail is one of my favorite paintings of all time.
