Keep up the good work --it is appreciated Sam Miller, Compressor and David Wilson like this. Thanks for the appreciation and the book recommendation, Sam.

As you are aware, there was a second player in the development of fins, namely Frenchman Louis de Corlieu, who preceded Churchill and was known by him. I've read somewhere that Italian combat swimmers used crude versions of de Corlieu fins during the s and one of my online gleanings was a fin design by the Italian footwear company Superga from that era: You mention the Hans Hass model made by Semperit of Austria and the German online museum of underwater gear I mentioned in my first posting has a picture: Here's an image of a West German fin dubbed "Original" and made by Barakuda from the early s: I think the East German Kessler fins have a close resemblance to these Barakuda Originals, which may indeed have been originally modelled on the Churchills or its British copies made by Dunlop and being sold as war surplus at the time.

Diving writer Norbert Gierschner is quoted as saying in an article that he purchased a pair of Hydro-Slips in and used them as his first set of fins for diving. A black version also existed, as this eBay picture shows: I'll move on next to the later, upgraded version of the Hydro-Slip fin, dubbed the Hydro-Slip Super.

In spite of these rough and quick strokes, the model is nonetheless depicted in a very precise manner.
Shiny eyes, sharply contoured pupils, sinewy neck or bony shoulder blades, everything is named and shown unambiguously and without any doubt — but still, it is pure painting that does not illusionistically submit itself to the depicted and does not pretend not to exist.
