About: Reginald Marsh was drawn to the vitality of common life. A favorite motif was the public beach, particularly the beaches at Coney Island and Atlantic City where New Yorkers went to escape the summer heat. This crowded scene with its intertwined figures and leering glances shows the beach to provide little respite from summer in the city.
