|“Day at the Shore” oil on canvas, signed lower right By Thomas Cowperthwaite Eakins (1844 - 1916). Dimensions: 23 ½” X 14 7/8” (33 ½” X 24” outside of frame). Unparalleled mastery is demonstrated here in this fine piece with museum quality detail and artistry. Eakins boldly exhibits his uniquely emotive realistic style in difficult to execute subjects’ faces, the depth created in the water and the picturesque sky. From Philadelphia, Eakins studied at Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts then Ecole Des Beaux Arts in Paris, and subsequently traveled and painted extensively throughout Europe. He is viewed by some to be the Father of modern Realism. Comparable works include the sale price of $88,000 for Lot # 116 “Hauling the Seine, Shad Fishing Off Glou” sold at Sotheby’s New York on December 3, 1987.|
