Anshutz Thomas Pollock    Pages: 1-2

(b Newport, KY, 5 Oct 1851; d Fort Washington, PA, 16 June 1912).

American painter and teacher. In 1872 he moved to New York, where he enrolled at the National Academy of Design. By 1875 he had advanced to the life class but found the Academy Ďa rotten old institutioní. Moving to Philadelphia, Anshutz entered a life class taught by Thomas Eakins at the Philadelphia Sketch Club and transferred to the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts when it opened its new building in 1876. Continuing to study under Eakins and Christian Schussele (1824/6Ė79), Anshutz soon became Eakinsís assistant demonstrator for anatomy courses taught by the surgeon William Williams Keen.
