After Treatment

Boudin (1824-1898) was born into a seafaring family, and is best known for his paintings of sea and sky. He worked directly from nature on the Normandy coast, especially in the resort towns of Deauville and Trouville. He always painted outdoors and was interested in the effects of light on the sea and sand in different seasons and times of day. Monet and the other Impressionist painters held Boudin in such high esteem that he was included in the first Impressionist exhibition in 1874. Boudin introduced Monet and others to plein air painting, working directly from nature, in the open air.
