Boudin painted en plein air (outdoors) in front of his subject, using loose, free brushstrokes. He was skilled at painting clouds and reflections on water, and typically the sky and sea dominate. This work was made in the 1870s during his travels through Europe. Eugène Boudin was the son of a ship’s captain. The coastline, shipping and harbours appear in a lot of his work. Boudin studied in Paris, but it was paintings of his native Normandy that gave him public recognition.
