About the Work

Swimming was a major recreational activity for Frederic and Eva Remington when summering at Ingleneuk. Swimming references occur frequently in the artist's diary, for instance: "swim-lunch-nap-swim" and "Having a bully swim these days and feeling fine." Here an unknown artist delineates Eva diving gracefully from a dock, presumably that of the boathouse, while Remington's massive body humorously causes the river level to rise. A friend once said of Remington that he "never stays put for long in one place, but there's an awful lot of him when he's around." The illustrator neatly connects each drawing to its text with a wavy watery line.
