#Three Bathers by the Shore

Three Bathers by the Shore, 1920

Pablo Picasso


Description via The Metropolitan Museum of Art:  “After the end of World War I, Picasso discovered a new subject, bathers at the seashore. He and his wife, Olga, began to frequent French resorts, where it had become fashionable for beachgoers to enjoy the sun rather than hide from it. This provided an opportunity for Picasso to marry his observations of daily life with an interest in classical antiquity he had been nurturing since his 1917 trip to Italy. These classical goddesses seem to be looking at a very modern airplane just beyond the picture plane”  Image:  NY Books

Three Bathers Reclining by the Shore, 1920

Pablo Picasso                                           


Description via The Metropolitan Museum of Art:  “This is the second in a pair of drawings executed on the same day at the fashionable resort of Juan-les-Pins, on the French Riviera. The foreground figure is a quotation of Ingres’s Grande Odalisque (1814, Musée du Louvre, Paris). The American publisher Scofield Thayer bought the drawings soon after they were made. As Thayer intended to illustrate works from his collection in his magazine, The Dial, he favored drawings and pastels over paintings, which were difficult to reproduce accurately”
