In this composition, the French photographer and painter Jacques-Henri Lartigue, here lying on his back in blue swimming trunks, draws the main attention in this composition of four sunbathers scattered widely on the terrace of a rocky beach, even in his position deliberately pushed to the edge. A figure jumping into the sea at the top of the picture, compositionally connected to Lartigue via a vertical axis, can also be seen as a homage to his photographic work, in which motion images play a central role. His vivid snapshots, carried by a certain carefree characterize his photographs.
