"Once derided as a slavish admirer of Renoir, the painter and illustrator William Glackens is among the most intriguing and underestimated participants in the first wave of 20th-century American modernism.

"A handsome, congenial, ambitious man who traveled early and often to Paris, Glackens led an unusually pleasant life, especially for an artist. He made a happy marriage with Edith Dimock, an artist from Hartford, who was of independent mind and means and trained at the Art Students League. Until his death in 1938, and especially once Edith came into her full inheritance in 1917, Glackens could spend much of his time drawing and painting what was almost always immediately in front of him.

That is a popular raft! Thanks, Gayle.

Thanks for the introduction to William Glackens! And by the way, love the swimsuits!

Neat picture but I think I would feel a little more comfortable if that platform was a few feet further out. I'm thinking that going down the slide you would hit your bottom on the bottom a little hard and I hope the female on the "diving" platform is going to jump in and not dive in. The water looks like it is only waist deep.
