  1. I like all of these, but the Child Hassam ones are my faves.

  2. Hi, just wanted to say how much I've enjoyed reading your posts and how wonderful your pictures are - really breathtaking ! Thankyou for sharing

  3. what a fantastic theme for a hot August

  4. wow, I love all of these for one reason or another and now I feel like going skinny dipping! It's a bit hot here in CA!

    have loved your pics, btw...

  5. What a lovely huge set!

    Normally I would not like Picasso's treatment of the nude female form, but these are so playful. The boat! And that third face looming over the horizon line, like a giant out to sea. I also particularly like the Kirchner and the Derain.
