“Léon René Maurice Bathers”, as much as they are men, belong to the series of Cécile Colombo’s Bathers.
Cecile Colombo‘s bathers elicit all sorts of reactions from visitors to our gallery; the most frequent ones are smiles and benevolent tenderness. The artist is particularly attentive to the making of patterns that tell us about the joyful and positive fashion of the 70s: bright colours, flowers, fruits and geometric patterns, flowery bathing caps…
It is also her own story that she tells us, when as a child in Marseille, she accompanied her aunts to the beach, who themselves met their beach friends. “Léon René Maurice Bathers” is the male version of this smiling series. A picture full of happy nostalgia and affectionate memories.
