Although painted in the period of “Guernica”, during the Spanish Civil War that marked Pablo Picasso so much, “Swimming on the Beach” is an alternative to violence, a peaceful day at the beach.

Two young girls play with a small boat while a bather observes them.

Some saw it as a form of voyeurism on this man watching out for these naked and sexually attractive young girls.

A painting reminiscent of Diana's myth in the bath.

The style here is deliberately simple with embossed characters, ossified.

The characters combine spikes and curves full of softness.
