Surf Bathing, Grand Isle

"Surf Bathing: Grand Isle, LA " is one of a pair of long horizontal paintings of that area of Louisiana which had been a popular recreation place. This painting is considered genre because it is a depiction of an everyday scene; people during leisure time. Though this painting depicts people having fun at the beach, a hint of melancholy is filtered in by large dead trees that litter the sand.
