Detail of Thomas Eakins; “The Gross Clinic” 1875. Painting rejected by the Salon of 1876 for being “too graphic”. The patient’s mother recoiling (l. of surgeon) was castigated as too “melodramatic.” Different internal realities, big history of medicine, personal history, life, death, science, pensiveness, humility, intent, uncertainty, love. Different pitches of being; taperings of the woven carpet of our individualities. Do you see it? The …. Being seen. #Desperado Xo
