Recently, I posted an article on the Thomas Eakins
' painting "The Gross Clinic"
, which was about to be sold by Thomas Jefferson University, possibly to a museum outside Philadelphia. I'm happy to report that the piece will remain in Philly now, and will rest in the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
The painting is only half paid for, however, so the museum is collecting donations in order to meet its debt. To find out how to support this effort, go the the PMA official site
