In Picasso's works, the classic freshwater nymph became a figure who seemed to have sprung from saltwater, living on the beach. The transformations of Picasso’s bathers occur throughout his artistic production and his life. The exhibition is based around Woman Seated on the Beach (1937), a painting that has become an iconic symbol of the museum’s collection.
