About the artwork

From the 18th century bathing in the sea and the benefits of the marine climate were recommended for their therapeutic virtues. At the time balneotherapy was above all an upper class pursuit and its practice indicated a superior and shared social belonging. Little by little, swimming became more popular. It was still however unpopular at the time to walk in a bathing-suit along the beach. In order to change but also to bathe privately, bathers used mobile cabins with wheels. Whilst getting changed, a horse pulled the cabin towards the edge of the water and it was turned seaward. Bathing could therefore be carried out very discreetly. Once the bathing was completed, a flag was hoisted to attract the coachman?s attention and indicate that he could come and collect the cabin.
