‘The Bathers’, by Paul Cézanne

From Paul Cézanne [19 January 1839 – 22 October 1906], The Bathers, 1899/1904

Paul Cézanne – The Bathers, 1899/1904
The Art Institute of Chicago

Through his studies of groups of bathers outdoors, Paul Cézanne reconceived a classical subject in a modern, pictorial idiom. Though clearly related, The Bathers is not a study for either of the monumental canvases of bather subjects that the artist left unfinished at his death; rather, it is an independent, exploratory work painted with a more spritely touch. For all its compositional complexity, it retains the lightness of a watercolor, with thin parallel strokes and dashes and areas of white-primed canvas showing through the paint.
