Camille Pissarro is sometimes called the “father of Impressionism.” The theme of women bathing in country streams during the idyllic season of summer appears repeatedly in Pissarro’s graphic work from 1894 to 1897, when he created twelve lithographs and eight etchings on the subject. All of these intimate scenes take place in the shady bend of a stream and focus on the physical freedom of the nude bathers as they enjoy the open air and light of nature.
