Negress, 1869

Thomas Eakins

This painting was done when Thomas Eakins went through 3 years of rigorous academic training at the École des Beaux-Arts under Jean Leon Gerome at Paris.
In the European imaginary, the black female body was forced to conform to multiple (and contradictory) gendered roles. The most frequently rehearsed role assigned to the black female was that of the alluring temptress. Nineteenth-century naturalists sustained a correlation between the physical attributes of the négresse and her excessive sexual appetites. Eakins’s image adhered to many of the expected somatic characteristics of the black female body, it avoided the distilled (and presumed) verisimilitude that was the hallmark of Eakins’s teacher, Gerome. Same model appears in few Bazille paintings.
 

The painting will be delivered unstreched, rolled in protective & presentable case.
