Like other nineteenth-century artists, Thomas Eakins initially embraced photography as a study tool in his efforts to paint the people and activities of modern life. However, he soon came to love photography's depiction of natural light and its inherent artistic potential, as seen in this portrait of Jennie Dean Kershaw.
