Les Baigneurs (grande planche).

Color lithograph, circa 1896-98. 410x505 mm; 16x20 inches, full margins. Druick's third state (of 3). Edition of approximately 100. Printed by Auguste Clot, Paris. Published by Vollard, Paris. A superb, richly-inked impression of this large, important lithograph, with strong colors, and with particularly rich blue color throughout.

Cézanne (1839-1906) based this iconic color lithograph on his earlier painting, Baigneurs au repos, 1875-76, now in the Barnes Foundation, Philadelphia. There is also a watercolor and gouache maquette for the color lithograph at the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa. Cherpin 7; Druick I.
