The Bathers (small version)

Paul Cézanne (French, 1839–1906) Printed by Auguste Clot (French, 1858–1936) Published by Ambroise Vollard, Paris (1867–1939)
To make his color prints Cézanne collaborated with Auguste Clot, a professional printer who excelled in the production of color lithographs requiring separate stones for each color. Cézanne drew his image directly on a stone, which Clot printed as a black-and-white proof. Cézanne then hand-colored the proof for Clot to follow as a model when making the color stones.
