Colloquium: “Thomas Eakins (1844–1916): Painting and Masculinity”

Presented in conjunction with the Thomas Eakins retrospective at the Musée d’Orsay, this colloquium examines the complexity of Eakins’ art. Speakers discuss new ways of thinking about art history that had developed in American scholarship in recent years, specifically issues related to gender construction in Eakins’ oeuvre. Symposium papers were published: Thomas Eakins, Painting and Masculinity (Terra Foundation for the Arts/Musée d’Orsay, 2003). This event is organized by the Musée d’Art Américain Giverny and the Musée d’Orsay.
