What is Amelia Thinking?

Since Made in the USA: American Masters from The Phillips Collection, 1850–1970 opened, visitors have shared their ideas about what Miss Amelia Van Buren, the subject of Thomas Eakins’s painting, may be thinking.

We’ve gotten 75 submissions so far via a comment station in the galleries and social media.
