Entitled “Boudin, Monet and the Sea Painters of Normandy,” this is a compact and refreshingly well defined show. It charts the rising popularity of the Norman coast among French (and some English) painters of the nineteenth century; it reexamines Boudin’s role in establishing the beach, peopled by holidaymakers, as a subject popular with. Boudin’s art is the kind of art which wins you over, not by its audacity of expression or the obtrusive violence of its touch, but by its beauty, which combines intimacy, delicacy and truth innovative in a way because it developed towards the open air, toward impression his palette of greys and blues, his exquisite shading, his consistent harmony were neither conventional nor formulistic. Rather, they recalled the tonalities of paintings by the Barbizon artists, and Boudin’s seascapes. He composed a range of colour based on yellow-brown or blue-grey. At the Third Impressionist Exhibition in Monet presented a series of paintings for the first .   Sotheby's Impressionist & Modern Art Evening sale on 19 June will feature a group of four works by three of the most celebrated Impressionist painters: Pissarro, Monet and Boudin. These four works come from a single private American collection and exemplify the mastery over light that these painters achieved in their work.

  Away from the crowds, Honfleur also has an art museum with some notable samples of impressionism in Normandy. The Boudin Museum was founded by a local boy who made good: Eugene Boudin. Monet • Biography • Artistic Influences • Eugène Boudin. Eugène Boudin's Influence on Monet. Boudin was born in Honfleur, Normandy. While working in Le Havre, he met artists in the area and began painting. By the time he he was painting full time, spending time in Paris, Normandy. The relationship between Monet and the sea started soon as the young artist established, along with his family, in the coastal town of Le Havre, Normandy, in the mids. In these early years Monet did not feel an immediate attraction for the “plen air” painting, and he focused in creating caricatures of neighbors and acquaintances. The monographic exhibition Monet / Boudin presented by the Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza offers visitors the first opportunity to discover the relationship between the great Impressionist painter Claude Monet (Paris, -Giverny, ) and his master Eugène Boudin (Honfleur, -Deauville, ), the most important representative of midth-century French plein airpainting.

At the Third Impressionist Exhibition in Monet presented a series of paintings for the first time: seven views of the Saint-Lazare train station. Eugène Louis Boudin (French: ; 12 July – 8 August ) was one of the first French landscape painters to paint outdoors. Boudin was a marine painter, and expert in the rendering of all that goes upon the sea and along its shores. His pastels, summary and economic, garnered the splendid eulogy of Baudelaire; and Corot called him the "King of the skies". A fresh sea breeze appears to be gusting through the art galleries of Northern Europe this summer. A fortnight ago I reviewed the excellent, compact exhibition at the Bowes Museum devoted to “Boudin, Monet and the Sea Painters of Normandy”.
