Eakins employed photography to imbue his paintings with increased naturalism. He used his students at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts as models and began to compile a photographic catalogue that would aid his studies of the human physique. This image is an exercise in pose and gesture in which the stance of the models consciously echoes that of the figures in the sculpted relief beside them.
