About this work
Boudin made his reputation painting Parisian society at the seaside resorts of Deauville and Trouville in Normandy. Here however, the composition is almost empty of human figures. In the foreground, fishermen are shown beside horses pulling a cart at low tide. Flecks of paint indicate the leisured visitors who populate the distant sea shore. Boudin’s sensitivity to light and weather effects had an important influence on Monet. (Permanent collection label)
