About this artwork

Boudin was a native of Honfleur, one of the most picturesque harbor communes in the French region of Normandy. Self-taught, he started experimenting with pastel in the 1850s. This sort of landscape, likely made en plein air, would prove extremely influential to the young Claude Monet.
