good to know the Dutchies are not the only ones that fucked up their beach cities .. well actually .. its not good to know .. its monetary reality
i had a reproduction of Picasso's Les Baigneuses on my wall for about 20 years and never realized it was painted in Biarritz, France .. i got a shiver when i entered the beach saw the lighthouse and realized this was it.
i strawled the beach to try to find the position where the artist stood to paint the picture and then found out there was not one position he took .. just like the bathing girls the whole picture is a mix of views from different positions and angles
Picasso oversized the lighthouse .. he added windows to this side of the tower .. he brought the beach closer to the lighthouse rock .. he filled the sea with rocks that are not there .. and there must be his genius .. he did not paint reality but composed it
