Beaches and Bathers in contemporary and modern art

A conference by Agnès Ghenassia

Since fashion for sea bathing which developed in the middle of the 19th century, a number of painters have dealt with the theme of the beach, sometimes privileged its luminous atmospheres, sometimes its social dimension.
Enigmatic, Cézanne’s bathers are timeless. Troubling, those of Picasso accompany each of his stylistic breaks. Exploring this theme to its contemporary interpretations will allow us to extend the pleasures of summer into September.
