The artist's boyhood friend, Max Schmitt, sits as a champion oarsman in a scull on Philadelphia's Schuylkill River while the artist himself can be seen rowing away in another more distant boat. Tranquil and still, the scene's quietude commemorates an athlete's victory in a dramatic moment of rest. A snapshot of the artist's life, Eakin's love of sports and his technical prowess for painting are both honored by this work. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its bold brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. Our replica European style frame is cast in quality designer resin and highlighted with a beaded inner border and an antiqued ebony finish.
