35 Van Buren later became interested in photography, an enthusiasm she may have initially acquired from Eakins, who himself had used photographs extensively in his work. She turned from painting to work exclusively as a photographer. She may have found the expressive potential of photography challenging, seeing photography as an art form in its own right, and, too, Van Buren may have believed that for a woman, photography offered a better chance for recognition.

63 Oh. A van Buren; not the van Burens.
Never mind.

Miss Amelia Van Buren or Portrait of Amelia C. Van Buren is a c. 1891 painting by the American artist Thomas Eakins, now in The Phillips Collection. It depicts Amelia Van Buren, an artist who studied with Eakins, and was called "one of his most gifted pupils." The painting is considered one of Eakins's finest works.

Posted by: andycanuck (krqg6) at December 07, 2023 09:40 AM (krqg6)

64 I'm not a huge fan of portraits as a genre but Eakins ability to portray texture (look at the dress and the cloth on the chair arm cushions) and mood (contemplative) through posture and use of light is worthy of study. In this case his techniques and talent are more interesting to me than the model.

Posted by: JTB at December 07, 2023 09:40 AM (7EjX1)

78 WTF

The line between impartiality and questionable behavior was a thin one. When a female student, Amelia Van Buren, asked about the movement of the pelvis, Eakins invited her to his studio, where he undressed and "gave her the explanation as I could not have done by words only".

The Portrait of Amelia Van Buren by Thomas Cowperthwait Eakins was painted about 1891. She was his student for a time among other activities.

From Wikipedia, "Eakins's helpfulness included unusual methods: he once disrobed privately for Van Buren in order to demonstrate an anatomical point, an action that he characterized as purely professional. Nevertheless, the story was one of numerous controversial incidents used by Eakins's political adversaries to prompt his dismissal from the Pennsylvania Academy."

This is great stuff. Especially if you have no class or taste which describes me perfectly.

Posted by: Lady in Black at December 07, 2023 07:56 AM (mupln)


I had a link in the last day or two that promoted him as the pick. He's a fine man and I think a great choice.




----

I brought this up because it's a touchy subject with me. Dr. Carson was my original choice. He was from Detroit (asi I am) and an admirable man. He used his own money as secretary to build several schools in our inner city. The city council of Detroit, in league with our governor and attorney general, campaigned against that fine man to have his name taken off any buildings.?in my opinion it was an unforgivable act b and showed how little they care about the people. They will go to great lengths to lobby for free water, but any effort to give those people a good role model is shut down.

221 Aha, Eakins and Van Buren.

Her talent soon led Eakins to tutor her personally, including controversial lessons using nude models, male and female.[2]: 127  In 1885–86, several of Eakins's former art students (including Thomas Pollock Anshutz and Colin Campbell Cooper) conspired to have Eakins fired from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. They approached the Academy's Committee on Instruction, and made numerous charges against Eakins. They alleged that Eakins had used female students, including Van Buren, as nude models. Another highly inflammatory charge was that Van Buren had asked Eakins a question regarding pelvic movements, which Eakins answered by removing his pants and demonstrating the movements. He later insisted that the episode was completely professional in nature.[3]: 116  The committee left Eakins under the impression that the charges had been filed by Van Buren, who had moved to Detroit to recover from neurasthenia.[4] That, however, was not the case, as she greatly respected Eakins and in years to come would defend him at every opportunity, as well as express pride in owning pieces of his artwork.[5]: 323 .

255 (Children’s Health Defense) — The Brazilian Ministry of Health has added the COVID-19 vaccine to the country’s National Immunization Program (PNI) for children 6 months to 5 years old, Agência Brasil reported.

The new policy will take effect in 2024, despite growing opposition among Brazilians and testimony by experts highlighting concerns about the safety of COVID-19 vaccines for children and increased incidences of myocarditis, pericarditis, and other conditions among young vaccinated individuals.

Despite these concerns, which were addressed in a recent hearing before Brazil’s Chamber of Deputies and by several opposition lawmakers, Brazilian Minister of Health Nísia Trindade defended the new policy, while the Brazilian government said families of unvaccinated children will not receive support from the Bolsa Família welfare program.

In addition to the COVID-19 vaccine mandate for young children, a bill under consideration by the Brazilian Senate would establish vaccination centers in the country’s schools.

They'll stop at nothing to ruin absolutely everything.


I guess the horses just had to work too darn hard to get the full 1 1/2 miles.

Belmont park is undergoing massive renovations I guess. But moving it to a track that cant accommodate the distance is retarded.

Miss Amelia Van Buren is bored
Our did someone say something untoward
About her kittens five
Of which, four are alive
With one roasting inside a butternut gourd.

You poor dear. First thing you know, we'll demand you wipe front to back. How many full stops are there in an ellipsis?
Some damned fool socially advanced you right through the critical years of your education. Now you're going to get roughed up every time you prove in public how deficient you are. Bleat on.
