General description from the museum (© Copyright - Barnes Foundation -

In the last decade of his life, Paul Cézanne produced three enormous multi-figure bathing scenes that are often regarded as the culminating works of his career. Of these, the largest and most resolved is at the Philadelphia Museum of Art; another is at the National Gallery, London. The present canvas, which Albert Barnes acquired in 1933, is in many ways the most ambitious of the trio. Probably begun around 1895, The Large Bathers is an intensely physical painting that seems to have consumed Cézanne for roughly ten years; a photograph taken in 1904 shows the picture in a still-unfinished state. But even without this documentary evidence, the canvas bears the marks of a long, labored working process, with a surface so impossibly thick with paint that it rises up in clumps in some areas and forms sculptural ridges in others.The subject is perfectly conventional: a group of nudes relaxes in a landscape, with trees arching overhead and still-life elements in the foreground, tropes borrowed from a long tradition of pastoral imagery. There is nothing conventional, however, about the way this scene is painted. While Cézanne's contemporaries often presented bathers in harmony with the landscape, here nature seems menacing, and the landscape's relationship to its human inhabitants is difficult to understand. Clouds are heavy, with an almost oppressive weight, and the blue sky peeking through them is rendered with paint so thick that it literally projects. One tree leans into the center, its sharp branches cutting aggressively across the sky in three parallel spokes. One wonders why, in this scene that presumably takes place in summer, these branches are bare; patches of green in the background suggest foliage, but the foreground trees around which the bathers gather are emphatically, eerily, dead.The figures themselves are at once beautiful and unsightly. They are elegantly arranged, in postures borrowed from classical sculpture and baroque painting. An unusual ridge of thick blue paint surrounding each of the figures lends the group an air of slowness, or serenity, even as it suggests artistic struggle. Colors are often breathtaking, as in the reds that spread across cheeks and hair, and in the pale blues and lavenders that suggest shadows. At the same time, Cézanne undermines 19th-century standards of beauty: skin is composed of patches that shift suddenly from one color to the next, and gender is difficult to read. Is the bather leaning against the tree a man or a woman? Paint pulled down between that figure's legs seems to want to obliterate sex. Anatomies are distorted, sometimes to disturbing effect—feet, hands, and fingertips often do not exist. The face of the figure leaning against the tree registers as a blank, with features buried beneath a blanket of brushstrokes. Even more jarring is the walking figure at left, whose towel cascades theatrically into the foreground but whose head is a mere knob of flesh. The 1904 photograph reveals that thisfigure did at one time have a fully resolved face and head, but Cézanne painted it out, in just one of this picture's many radical moments.Martha Lucy, The Barnes Foundation: Masterworks (New York: Skira Rizzoli, 2012), 66-67.
