At first glance of Max Liebermann “At the Swimming Hole (Im Schwimmbad)” I was drawn into the painting by its concept of it being a look into the everyday life of a young boy in the 1870’s.

According to Emerson from Nature, “The sun illuminates only the eye of the man, but shines into the eye and the heart of the child.” This quote means that the youth are more innocent, and are instantly open to new options. Chris challenges Emerson
The hot sun burns against my dripping back as I hold a prickling pile of freshly cut pine leaves to throw away. They sting my flesh as they pass the pores of my dad’s worn-out red working gloves I wear. Each thorn is like a stab against my pride and a crying demand for me to surrender.
