Les Docheurs by Emmanuelle Jude

This is one of roughly 50 paintings of people taking a shower at one of the beaches in Collioure, part of an exhibit called Les Docheurs by the artist Emmanuelle Jude. The paintings took on a vastly different meaning when we learned that the artist’s parents had died at Auschwitz, leading to the comment “I could never take a shower” attributed to her at a recent celebration of the collection at the Museum of Modern Art in Collioure.
