Thomas Eakins’ Setter

HarryThis is a sketch (by Eakins)  of Thomas Eakins’  setter  Harry.    I told mom to put it in her painting blog.  She said he’s a dog,  he’s going in the dog blog.   Harry was a studio dog too.   Eakins painted a picture of Harry with his wife in 1884, so it was about then that Harry was around.  The Met has a lot of Eakins paintings and a good bio on its website.   He painted wonderful rowers.
