A Bather
Pierre-Auguste Renoir

Renoir's visit to Italy in 1881 stimulated an interest in subjects inspired by classical antiquity rather than taken from contemporary life. This resulted in series of nudes set in generalised landscape settings which he painted in the late 1880s and 1890s, of which this is an example.
