Odyseus Sirens.jpg
"Ulysses and the Sirens" - Herbert James Draper (1909)

In support of my proposed nomination to join a certain exclusive club, I would just point out that I have always been immensely fond of this painting. The epic subject, the composition, the flow of the action, don't you know. Plus, I was an oarsman in college, after all.

The first rule of the RCBfA is that you don't talk about the RCBfA.

That's not the Radcliffe crew, by any chance? They appear to have lost the shirt race.

Naw, those look more like Holyoke girls to me.

I recall that regular commenter TDP and I were together somewhere (the Dad Vails, I think) when we came across the Holyoke lightweight eight and instantly fell in love. Alas, they had not lost their shirts.
