76.2 x 101.6 cm

Jeffrey Camp recently identified this work as depicting children swimming with their parents in Oulton Broad Lido in Suffolk close to Lowestoft. It is likely that Camp painted this work en plein air and has captured the movement of the swimmers with loosely applied oil paint.

Provenance
Purchased from a private collection in March 2016.
