When my wife and I visited the Art Museum of Cincinnati a few years back a very large sculpture of a nude Eve by Hiram Powers stood watch over the entry to the main hall. It was likely designed by him and carved by someone else, or at least finished by someone else, as he died before it was completed.

If you exclude the biblical references and concentrate on the woman that’s in the work, it’s clear that what started out as art then, continues to be art now.


I’m certainly not going to compare what I do with a camera to what Powers did with a chisel, but the art that we portray through the beauty of women, remains the same. Timeless.
