Extensively illustrated. More than fifty years ago, a treasury of studio material-including oil sketches, sculptures, drawings, photographs, and manuscripts-was rescued from the empty house of Thomas Eakins by a devoted student, Charles Bregler.

This book is both a catalog of the Bregler collection and a reassessment of Eakins’s career as read through the newly discovered materials. 496p.
