The painting's composition echoes the event by reproducing the weather conditions/position of the sun at the date and time of Schmitt's triumph. Schmitt is depicted rowing upstream; his location is just south of the Columbia Railroad Bridge, the midpoint of the race. Eakins, who was also a keen rower, included himself as the sculler in the middle distance.
