Antoine Morlon is a painter who became famous at the Salon in Paris by exhibiting between 1868 and 1904 marine paintings from Normandy in the region of Fécamp and Yport. He was part of a community of artists who came to Yport, invited and hosted by the master Jean-Paul Laurens. There were Antoine Guillemet, Théodore Weber, Louis Mouchot, Paul Jamin, Alexandre Bida, Iwill, Paul Emile Sautais, André Devambez and Antoine Morlon.
The subject of our pastel is original for it mixes a marine with a genre scene. In the foreground young women get dressed after their swim, hidden by rocks while a woman is watching.
This is a sketch for the painting exhibited at the Salon in Paris in 1900 "Pendant la saison des bains à Cancale"/"During baths' season in Cancale"(number 968).
This drawing in pastel and pencil may be preparatory to a Salon painting well in the spirit of the 1880s / 1890s. The subject of Norman seascapes and that of naked women are indeed two subjects often exhibited at the Paris Salon at that time.
