John Lavery's "Swimming Pool, Southern France" is a captivating oil painting that captures the vibrant energy and leisure activities of a sun-drenched swimming pool complex in the south of France. Painted in a loose and impressionistic style, the painting depicts a bustling summer's day at a poolside retreat, showcasing the architectural features and the lively atmosphere of the pool.

The scene unfolds from a slightly elevated vantage point, allowing the viewer to survey the entire expanse of the pool area. The main pool, with its clear blue water, occupies the center of the composition, surrounded by sunbathers and swimmers enjoying the warm summer day. The pool's geometric lines and the double-decker changing cabins on the left-hand side provide a sense of structure and balance to the dynamic scene.

Lavery's brushwork is lively and expressive, capturing the movement of the swimmers and the overall sense of activity. The sunlight dances across the water's surface, creating shimmering reflections and illuminating the figures in a warm glow. The surrounding vegetation, with its lush trees and vibrant flowers, adds a touch of natural beauty to the scene.

Lavery's palette is limited, with a focus on warm tones that evoke the heat and sunlight of the southern French landscape. The blue of the sky and water complements the green of the trees and the terracotta of the poolside tiles, creating a harmonious and inviting color scheme.

"Swimming Pool, Southern France" is a celebration of leisure and recreation, capturing the carefree spirit of the interwar era. It reflects the growing popularity of public swimming pools as recreational spaces and the social significance of these facilities in bringing people together. Lavery's painting serves as a reminder of the simple pleasures of life and the importance of outdoor spaces for leisure and community.

Available as a fine art print and as a stretched canvas panel (heavy fine art canvas stretched over 1.5 inch deep edge solid wood frame).
