Hello, Goodbye

Thomas Eakins, (1844-1916)
The Cello Player, 1896
Formerly the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia
Joseph E. Temple Fund, 1897

Tyler Green at Modern Art Notes has the scoop on the deaccession of Thomas Eakin's "The Cello Player" to help fund the accession of the "Gross Clinic": "Proceeds from the deaccessioning will be applied toward PAFA's co-purchase of Eakins' The Gross Clinic, which PAFA and the Philadelphia Museum of Art are co-purchasing from Thomas Jefferson University."
