Posted on: July 26th, 2013 by dan 130 Comments

The picture below was discussed earlier in  my 10 th post  .  The picture  was provided to me for research purposes .  That being, a  study of the thumbprint.  The source of the picture was the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington DC.  The art community believes the bronze arm  to be the arm of  Thomas Eakins.  I have made this picture a size  reasonable for viewing thus  enabling  me to get my findings understood.  When I work with the print it is much  larger.

The picture below the thumb was taken by me.  It is a partial print that was inadvertently made into the fresh paint of my painting.  I believe it was placed there while the artist viewed his greatest work, The Last Supper.   The artist I believe to be Thomas Eakins.  I further believe it to be a thumbprint due to the location on the painting.

It is located on the left vertical edge, about 2/3 rd  up from the bottom.  I do not show the print in its’ location due to the small size.  It is only approximately 3/4 inch long and 1/4 inch wide.   I therefor just exploded a view of  the  print.
