The Philadelphia Museum of Art’s exhibition “Seeing The Gross Clinic Anew” is on display at the Perelman Building for just one more weekend.

Acquired by the Museum and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 2007 after a public campaign to keep local artist Thomas Eakins’ painting in Philadelphia, the 1875 masterpiece Portrait of Dr. Samuel D. Gross (The Gross Clinic) has been specially cleaned and restored for the first time in almost fifty years for an exhibition that began July 23rd and ends January 9th, this Sunday.

The painting celebrates the nation’s most famous surgeon, Dr. Samuel Gross of Jefferson Medical College (now part of Thomas Jefferson University). It is accompanied by other works by Eakins, as well as artifacts from the 1876 American Centennial Exposition, where the work was originally shown.
