    Note : This oil probably depicts Royan, where Fergusson and Peploe had worked in 1911. Fergusson submitted it to the Salon D'Automne, where he had been elected Societaire in 1909, as he particularly admired fellow exhibitors such as Matisse, Van Dongen and the Fauves. Painted during his most progressive and singular period of creativity, 'La Plage' coincided with Fergusson's involvement with the magazine 'Rhythm' as Art Editor, securing contributions from Picasso, Derain, Larionov and Gaudier-Brzeska.
