Around 1930, men and women were for the first time able to frolic together in and around the newly opened public swimming pools. Albert Solbach, a largely unknown artist and designer, joined many of his peers in choosing an androgynous bather as the focus of his poster for Lucerne’s municipal beach. The elegant colonnaded wing of changing rooms was built in 1929 by Arnold Berger. Shown in the poster with the inscription “Luzern” and a mountain backdrop, the building forms a tranquil horizontal line behind the crossed diagonals of the lakeshore and the woman’s body.
