Les Trois Baigneuses

Pablo Picasso (Spanish, 1881-1973)


In the 1920s, Picasso adopted for himself the pure and sculptural qualities of ancient Greek art.  On occasion his subjects were also classically inspired, as here, where his three bathers are the direct descendants of the mythological Three Graces.
