Founded in 1860, the Philadelphia Sketch Club is America’s oldest artists club. Exhibits and interest in fine art photography have existed at the Sketch Club from its earliest days. One of its founders, John L. Gihon, pursued photography as an art form as did other notable members to include Thomas Eakins, George B. Wood, William Shewell Ellis and Richard Dooner. Lectures at the Club’s monthly meeting have also focused on photography with the most notable being by Professor Eadweard Muybridge who did experimental photography of action subjects.
