|1890-92 The Concert Singer oil on canvas 191.4 x 138.1 cm|
The Concert Singer depicts the singer Weda Cook (1867–1937). The work, commenced in 1890 and completed in 1892, was Eakins's first full-length portrait of a woman. It is now in the Philadelphia Museum of Art. There is another portrait of Weda Cook from 1891 below. Eakins also painted Weda Cook’s husband Stanley Addicks. See ‘The Pianist (Stanley Addicks)’ 1896 below.
Weda Cook was also the subject of several photographs by Eakins at around this time – an example here, more to come in part 6 of this post:

|1896 Portrait of Harrison S. Morris oil on canvas|
Active in numerous art organizations, Morris later worked as a magazine editor. He was a prolific author of fiction, poetry, artist biographies and articles, and in 1930 penned his autobiography, Confessions in Art. While strongly critical of the Academy (having departed in a stormy row with the board), his account revealed much about art-world and Academy dynamics in the early twentieth century.
In 1891 Morris encouraged Thomas Eakins to return to the Academy exhibitions after the artist's dismissal five years earlier. In 1896 he advocated acquisition of our first Eakins painting, The Cello Player, and sat for one of Eakins's greatest portraits, a work acquired for the permanent collection in 2000.
