September Morn

September Morn c1912 by French Painter Paul Émile Joseph Chabas (1869 – 1937), Illustrator and member of the Académie des Beaux-Arts.

This is his most successful piece and became known as the “succès de scandale” in the United States in May, 1913 when Anthony Comstock, secretary of the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice, protested against the painting as supposedly immoral.

The classical art painting shows a young lady standing in the waters of a large lake by the shoreline. She is nude and slightly crouched over as to indicate that she is a bit chilled, as her left hand rest on her left thigh a bit between both legs, while her right arm is positioned across her chest beneath her breast holding on to her left arm.

In the foreground of the painting to the viewers left are plants and in the water we can see some brown rocks. Reflecting of the vast expanse of water is the cloud filled sky and mountain range that is behind her in the far distance; with trickles of sunlight illuminating the young ladies figure.
