This dynamic drawing suggests a swimmer or bather, floating on her back, the water in gentle motion around her. The Swedish painter Evert Lundquist (1904-1994) resisted Constructivism and other forms of abstraction that were dominant in the years of his formative artistic development. His work was at the forefront of a new expressionism in Swedish art of the 1950s, along with such contemporaries as Olle Nyman and Roland Kempe.
