Salvador Dalí started out very early in painting. His initial works can be dated from 1910 to 1914, so that although by 1923 (the approximate date of this work) he was still only 19 years old, we cannot really describe him as a beginner. Influenced by his reading (the magazines Valori Plastici, L'Esprit Nouveau and the Alt Empordà weekly), he noted how Impressionism was giving way to new aesthetic forms, ones that he could identify with. Cubism, with its futurist air, was beginning to emerge in his works around that time and forms the context in which we may locate Bathers of Es Llaner.
