Ivan Konstantinovich Aivazovsky - An Ox-Drawn Cart on the Shore and a Swimmer in the Shallows [1868] by Gandalf
Via Flickr:
Painted in 1868, An Ox-Drawn Cart on the Shore and a Swimmer in the Shallows is one of the more unusual works by Aivazovsky (1817 - 1900) in terms of subject matter to appear at auction in recent years. A female figure undresses on an ox-drawn cart while her male companion is already swimming in the sea. Beyond, a ship lies anchored close to the shore.
