    A somewhat more carefully defined study of the same bather as on page VII verso of this sketchbook (see Philadelphia Museum of Art, 1987-53-43b). Having established the figure's pose through outlines alone, Cézanne begins at once to add the shading that suggests both form and space. Theodore Reff, from Paul Cézanne: Two Sketchbooks (1989), p. 155.
