It's a sunny day and the sun is warm from the sky. Ideal weather for going to the beach. This is what a young woman and her little girl thought. The woman is wearing a white dress with a red belt chosen to match her red headscarf. Leaning on one arm, she looks at the little girl who is playing in the sand next to her. The girl is wearing a blue dress with a white collar and blue socks. Her blonde hair is loose, which hides her face. The atmosphere is calm and peaceful, while the waves gently rush onto the beach. At midday the water becomes darker blue towards the horizon. The sail of a boat can be seen in the distance. The sky is cloudless.
Kaj Holst (1885 - 1962) is known for his quiet beach scenes, which in harmonious colors document the leisurely life on the beach. The beaches are located in his home country Denmark and, in addition to sandy beaches, more often have stone coasts.
