This subseries documents the many exhibitions dedicated to or including works by Thomas Eakins from 1917 to 1986. It includes primarily original, but also some photocopied extracts from, exhibition catalogs, checklists, and other ephemera, such as invitations to openings and previews. A small number of exhibitions featuring works inspired by Thomas Eakins, rather than by him, are also documented, as are a few exhibitions from World Fairs. Of particular note are the catalogs for exhibitions held at the Brummer Gallery in 1923 and at the Babcock Art Gallery in 1927, 1929, and 1930, which Susan Eakins played a hand in organizing. The series also includes the catalogs for the 1917 memorial exhibition held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the 1930 "Homer-Eakins-Ryder" exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art. Documentation of the 1930 and 1944 Eakins exhibitions held at the Philadelphia Museum of Art is in the "Museum bulletins" subseries, as those exhibition catalogs were the March 1930 and May 1944 issues. Exhibition reviews are included in the "Clippings" subseries. Catalogs written by Goodrich are included in the "Other writings" series.
