"Eakins' greatness as a painter is unchallenged...In this book Eakins is revealed as a great photographer as well...Virtually all surviving Eakins photographs are reproduced as faithfully as possible to the originals as Eakins created them...Among the nearly three hundred pictures, most of which have never been published previously, are a dozen of Walt Whitman, all the extant motion studies, Arcadian scenes, and, of course, intimate portraits of the artist's family and friends."--the publisher
