Description

Although it is difficult to be certain, this marine view of yachts, fishing boats and a steamer was probably painted from the beach at Deauville on the Normandy coast. Boudin had painted at Trouville and neighbouring Deauville from the early 1860s and continued to visit and paint in both towns until the end of his life.

This late painting shows how easily Boudin was able to capture the impression of a blustery grey sky, the rounded fullness of a breaking wave and the distinctive movements of the yachts and fishing vessels. Tiny notes of red and yellow give life to the predominantly blue-grey tonality.
