I went swimming this week and had a whole blog I wanted to write, which I was going to illustrate with this detail from an oil painting in the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich. I have spent far too long this morning trawling through the museum’s online catalogue in order to attribute the painting correctly and time marches on, so the whole swimming thing will have to wait until the next blog.
As well as failing to write the intended blog, I have also failed to attribute the picture. Winning at life…
I seem to remember asking at the time of the visit what the painting was titled and by which artist and no-one could answer. The mystery lives on, but look at that sea boil.
