It’s the last day of August, and it’s time for something delightful, summer-like in the coming fall. : )
Paul Cézanne, without the artist Cubism would never have been born, worked for seven years on the classic art-historical subject of The Bather. Although “The Bather” is clearly related to the work of Rubens or Titian, it is not a further study of those two monumental paintings of bathers that were still unfinished at the time of the artist’s death; rather, it is a An independent, exploratory work. Despite the complexity of the composition, it retains the lightness of a watercolor: thin parallel brushstrokes, and areas of the white undertone canvas that show through the paint. One of the most famous editions is called The Great Bather and is in the collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art; today we are presenting from the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago.
