Thomas Eakins Lecture

Scientist/artist Thomas Eakins was as exasperating as he was exacting; that didn’t win him many friends, but it also didn’t stop him from being remembered as one of the most important American realists of the early 20th century. Glassell School of Art Senior Lecturer David E. Brauer explores the work and lasting influence of the artist in "Thomas Eakins: Friday Afternoon Lecture" at 1:30 p.m. Friday, and 4 p.m. Saturday. Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 1001 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-639-7300 or visit www.mfah.org. Free with paid museum admission.
