Current GOAL

This trackable is unusual for its longevity. In the years 2010 to the present, collections of between 100 and 400 travel bugs have been annually released in the United States (95%) and Europe (5%). This travel bug is part of the mere three percent of the trackables released in the years 2010-14 that had survived for at least five years and had been retrieved and dropped off at least 25 times.  As of 4-Jun-19, this particular TB had been in circulation for 6.2 years and had been moved by 33 cachers.

Please drop it in rural OR Premium Member Only caches.  Do not place it in an urban cache or abandon it at a caching event.  Transport the bug in the original plastic bag for as long as the bag lasts; the bag keeps the trackable clean, protects the number and prevents tangling with other items.  Otherwise, take the travel bug anywhere you wish.  No permission is needed to leave the U.S.

Travel bug photos are appreciated and will be re-posted here.

About This Item

EakinsSwimmingHole

This is one of a series of travel bugs made to recognize paintings seen, and admired by the bug owner. A digital copy of this painting was downloaded from the internet. The copy was reduced in size and proportions cropped to accommodate the laminating materials available to the owner. Regrettably these processes diminish the effort of the artist. One truly must see the original in person to fully appreciate the work. The text below is a mixture of my own observations and material gleaned from the internet (mostly Wikipedia and Web Gallery).

Thomas Cowperthwait Eakins (1844-1916) was an American realist painter, photographer, sculptor, and fine arts educator. He is widely acknowledged to be one of the most important artists in American art history.  He worked exactingly from life, choosing as his subject the people of his hometown of Philadelphia. 
 
As an instructor he was a highly influential presence in American art. The difficulties which beset him as an artist were from seeking to paint the portrait and figure realistically and from behavioral and sexual scandals.  While female nudes were common in art work of the time, the studies of nude males (like this example) were scandalous.  Eakins also took a keen interest in the new technologies of motion photography, a field in which he is now seen as an innovator.  His accurate depictions of humans and animals in motion are a product of that study.  This painting was seen at an exhibition of American art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas.
