Further information
Credited with being the first person to encourage a young Claude Monet to paint outdoors, Eugène Boudin specialized in painting seascapes and coastlines. He also recorded weather conditions on his sketches as a reference for when he returned to his studio to complete a painting.

Trouville shows Boudin at the height of his abilities to capture seaside light, to successfully contrast sky and water, and to convey the ever-changing nature of both.
