Anders Zorn was a well-known personality in late 19th and early 20th century. He was an adroit painter portraying the wide-range of portraits, landscapes and genre-paintings.

As we can see here, the painting represents the girl called Helga with completely bare body. The apparent depiction of sensuality is being the main element as intended by the artist. The girl is standing without any clue of shyness in her eyes or in the body language. The girl in the backdrop is probably bent to take a robe or a towel.
