Study of a Seated Nude Woman Wearing Mask[1] (c. 1863-66) by Thomas Eakins

This drawing by American artist Eakins is a testament to the aphrodisian qualities of sensory deprivation. Central to this drawing are the breasts, ripe and heavy, surreal and unreal, proof that the most beautiful of women are not to be found in real life (except in brief photographic glimpses); but rather on paper.[2]


  • Charcoal on paper
  • circa 1863–1866
