Gouache on paper laid down on cardstock
9-3/4 x 7 inches (24.8 x 17.8 cm) (sheet)

PROPERTY FROM A DISTINGUISHED PRIVATE COLLECTOR

PROVENANCE:
Private collection, New York;
ACA Galleries, New York;
Forum Gallery, New York (labels verso);
Acquired by the present owner from the above, 2009.

Bathers is a stellar example of Max Weber's work during the pivotal period from 1909 to 1912, when he transitioned from his early Fauvist compositions to his mature Cubist style. Painted in 1910, two years after Weber returned to New York from his studies in Europe, the work retains the foundation of his European training, but the contorted figures and flattened space embody the fundamental roots for his Cubist exploration, which he would continue to develop, and lead to the most prolific and successful decade of his career.
