A master among the early 20th-century portrait painters, Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida excelled at producing scenes that were unassuming yet filled with emotion and pure beauty. Often moved by the people and landscapes of his home country Spain, Sorolla y Bastida left humanity with an accurate snapshot of his time’s reality, showing us what the ordinary life was like for those who surrounded him. Still, the quotidian nature of his paintings does not take away from their artistic significance and uncanny beauty.
Finished in June 1915, this oil on canvas is currently in possession of the Museo Sorolla in Madrid, Spain, where one can also find the sketches which the artist used as a study in the production of this piece. Originally called Saliendo del Baño, which would be more closely translated as “Leaving the Bath,” the painting depicts an adult woman and a child at the beach, with the original Spanish title indicating that the dip into the ocean might have had the role of an actual bath for the child.
In the painting, the woman is fully clothed, while the child is in the nude and protected from the sun by a white piece of cloth. The lady is holding the child in her arms and seems to be candidly looking at the child, even though her eyes are hidden from the observer by the golden locks of her hair. The scene is very tranquil, the weather is good, and the sea is calm. Although the character’s skin has a greenish hue, they seem to be the very image of health, and their posture betrays not having a care in the world. The colors of the characters blend nicely with their background, creating a sense of harmony and belonging.
A small rowboat is moored at the beach, and a man dives into the water further in the back, making this look like even more of an everyday scene. One could also posit that this quick snapshot of daily life might indicate Sorolla y Bastida’s connections with Impressionism. That we have access to the sketches that originated the painting is of particular interest, showing that the piece’s candidness was not the result of a speedy painting, but instead a calculated look and feel deliberately created by the artist with great skill.
