A classic look at the early days of rowing! This fantastic print features Philadelphia artist Thomas Eakins' contemporary painting of America's first-ever pairs scull race, held on the Schuylkill River in 1872. According to Eakins' records, the rowers in the painting are brothers John and Barney Biglin, who have just become the first in the race to complete their turn around the stake and head back for the home stretch. Rowing enthusiasts, this is a rare chance for you to own a beautiful and historic piece of rowing art!
