- Baigneuses (4e grande planche)
A composition of four figures. Only one figure is naked. From the front, she is lying on the ground on a drapery and her elbow rests on her companion's knee, sitting to the right. Behind her, in the background shadow, is the third figure who turns toward the right. The last figure is in the background too, almost in the middle, and is sits at the edge of the water. There are massive tall trees on the right that sweep toward the left.
