通过对户外游泳人群的研究,保罗·塞尚用一个现代的绘画习语重新认识了一个古典主题。尽管《沐浴者》有着明显的关联,但它并不是一部关于沐浴者主题的巨幅油画的研究,这是一部独立的、探索性的作品,画作的触感更为敏锐。尽管它的构图复杂,但它保留了水彩的轻薄,平行的笔划和破折号,以及白色底漆的画布。

Through his studies of groups of bathers outdoors, Paul Cézanne reconceived a classical subject in a modern, pictorial idiom. Though clearly related, The Bathers is not a study for either of the monumental canvases of bather subjects that the artist left unfinished at his death; rather, it is an independent, exploratory work painted with a more spritely touch. For all its compositional complexity, it retains the lightness of a watercolor, with thin parallel strokes and dashes and areas of white-primed canvas showing through the paint.
