Historical Context:
Although not a household name among American audiences, the painter and draftsman Eugène Boudin, nonetheless, played a seminal role in the origin and development of Impressionism. Born in Honfleur, a picturesque coastal city in Normandy, Boudin studied and worked in Paris but returned repeatedly to northern France throughout his life. His subject matter – fashionable vacationers along the coast, Breton peasants, still lifes – placed him firmly within the sphere inhabited by the Barbizon painters and later, the Impressionists.
