Well done! Thanks for making those clear connections to Eakins and Carpenter, among others.

Please don't forget the women πŸ™

HD was influenced by WW, and largely helped reposition femininity partly through the body. Their is also a lovely nude photo of her in nature. ♀️

A line that was in the original but was edited out was: "Another was Jane Addams, author and suffragette activist." She also signed the copy of the "Song of My Life" that was sent to Edward Carpenter.

Do you have the link to how HD was influenced by WW? Do you have a link to how to access the nude photo? Thank you for your comment.
