In this painting the artist disabuses the viewer of any doubts about the nature of the relationship–in the moment–between the subjects.  With The Scene I Saw at the Swimming Pool, the artist returns to a setting that he has previously used as a tableau for exploring intimacy with his subjects.  Here, the couple is enraptured in a deep embrace as they kiss passionately unaware–or unbothered by the viewer observing them from above.
