I have started my lineage search for members of  Thomas Eakins family.  The first step was to join   Ancestry.com. Several weeks ago I made the move.  At first it seemed a little daunting.  But I fooled around a little to get the feel of  the program.  It wasn’t[...]

This POST is for those readers that are comparing Leonardo’s apostles with that of Eakins’ apostles.

These two paintings are proportionally identical. However, when I photographed each painting I must have inadvertently nudged the camera slightly. I did[...]

What you see here is a photo of a partial finger print that was made in the fresh paint  of my painting, The Last Supper.   It was made on the left outside edge and is about 1/4″ by 3/4″ overall.   It was unintentionally made.

We can just review the facts.  Thaddeus was the same age as Jesus, they played together as children.  They were related.  They sat at the same table at the last supper.  At this point in time Jesus would have been in His very early 30’s.  Thaddeus[...]

I was disappointed there was no color print.  How could Thomas Eakins know the correct colors of the tunics and robes that the apostles wore.  H e could easily have traced a picture of the painting and then painted it in  shades of black, gray  and white. But color NO. [...]

Yes, it did provide a clue. But I  was hoping to see a color print of  The Last Supper.  The author Eugene Muntz must have traveled to Milan an visited the refectory of Santa Maria delle Grazie.  He described in detail the construction of the refectory, inside and outside. [...]
