Originally, The Dance on the Shore of 1900 was part of the collection of twenty-two paintings entitled 'The Frieze of Life'. The figures of dancing girls are at the centre of the action being observed by two figures in black - widows. The solitary woman in red symbolises the age of the climax of erotic strength. The cycle of life is rendered in wide colourful lines dividing the space into multi-coloured bands.
