EDITORS COMMENTS
Rub a Dub Dub: A Delightful Depiction of Maritime Camaraderie by Ethel Parkinson (1912) Step back in time with this charming and whimsical print titled "Rub a Dub Dub" by British artist Ethel Parkinson, created in 1912. This image transports us to the heart of the sea, where three jolly boys in sailor hats and colorful attire are seen enjoying a leisurely soak in a tub, bobbing gently on the waves. The playful title of the print, "Rub a Dub Dub," is derived from the traditional nursery rhyme "Sing a Song of Sixpence," which includes the line "Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie, When the pie was opened, the birds began to sing." The phrase "Rub a Dub Dub" is often used to describe a comfortable and contented atmosphere, making it a fitting title for this delightful scene. Ethel Parkinson's masterful use of color and detail brings the boys and their seafaring tub to life. The vibrant reds, blues, and greens of their clothing and the rich, textured water create a sense of depth and movement, while the boys' expressions of pure joy and relaxation add to the overall charm of the print. This image offers a glimpse into a simpler time, where the pleasures of life were found in the simple things - a warm tub, good company, and the beauty of the sea. "Rub a Dub Dub" is a timeless treasure that continues to delight and inspire, and a must-have for any collection of maritime or nautical art.
