An artistic allusion

(Or, Quoth the Sperm Whale “Swimming Hole”)

From Rod Williams, commenting on Facebook on my 9/6 posting “Rowing on the River”, about a Thomas Eakins painting:

— RW: We [Ted Bush and Rod] have a print that quotes from Eakins’s “Swimming Hole”


in an unusual and delightful way

(#2) The allusive work, by an unknown hand

— AZ > RW: A Google image search finds no exact match, alas.

— RW: Just got a lucky hit from googling “Foster whale print”… there’s a signature that looked kinda like “Foster.” And whaddyaknow — it was Larry Foster…

Pencil – Larry Foster

[pencil drawings of whales, lots of whales]
