"The Bathers" is about enduring love, evoking the stoicism within a long married life. In the face of hardship, signified by the cold North Sea, there is also a celebration of the joy and gratification shared between the couple. In this image of bathers, as with many of the artist's themes, Andrew Hunt explores the quintessential elements of the human condition: "Elderly people swim to keep fit as it is kinder to the joints and we recognise this fact when we go to the beach or to the swimming baths, so the image dwells in the familiar. As a figurative painter I was drawn to this narrative of ageing and love". Andrew Hunt.
