The Art Law Blog- Eakins

The Jefferson Trustees failed to understand the love of Thomas Eakins in the Philadelphia art community. Artists who like realism and all that it holds intellectually about the human condition put aesthetics above money every day. Only the cold hard analysis of business would look beyond the artistic value and transform this painting into bricks and steel to house the new medicine, devoid of human touch.

The Art Law Blog: "Well, that's exactly what's happened here (local art museums and governmental institutions have 45 days to match the offer), and the university is still coming in for the same kind of criticism."
