The Bathers was one of three Cézanne lithographs published in 1897 by his Parisian dealer, Ambroise Vollard, in an attempt to promote the paintings of the influential but reclusive artist. It closely follows a watercolor of the same name.

These same three lithographs represented Cézanne at the 291 gallery in 1910, marking the first appearance of his work in America. This was followed the next year by an exhibition of Cézanne’s watercolors at 291.
