Swimming (1883–85) by Thomas Eakins
Swimming, based on photographs that Eakins made of students in the flooded field, forced the painter’s resignation from the Pennsylvania Academy. Eakins generally favoured the male nude. ‘‘She is,” he wrote, referring to the naked woman, “the most beautiful thing there is – except a naked man.”
