Provenance
Legacy of Ramón de Errazu, 1904

Child nudes were very common during the painter's final period. This one reveals Fortuny's mastery at representing nudes and the effect of light on different surfaces, including the human body and the sandy beach. It suggests the relaxed and pleasant atmosphere of a body surrendered to the sun's warmth and energy.

This painting entered the Prado Museum as part of the legacy of Ramón Errazu.
