Trouville at Low Tide

Artist: Eugène Boudin

Date:1888-95

Eugène Louis Boudin (1824-1898) was one of the first French landscape painters to paint outdoors. He was a marine painter, and expert in painting everything to do with the sea and along its shores. Corot called him the "King of the skies". Born in the gorgeous French coastal town of Honfleur, Boudin was the son of a harbour pilot, and at age 10 he worked on a steamboat that ran between Le Havre and Honfleur. At the age of 22 he abandoned the world of commerce and started painting full-time. The Dutch 17th-century masters profoundly influenced him, and on meeting the Dutch painter Johan Jongkind, who had already made his mark in French artistic circles, Boudin was advised by his new friend to paint en plein air.

In around 1857 Boudin met and befriended the young Claude Monet, then only 18, and persuaded him to give up his teenage caricature drawings and to become a landscape painter, helping to instil in him a love of bright hues and the play of light on water so familiar in Monet's Impressionist paintings. The two remained lifelong friends and Monet later paid tribute to Boudin's early influence. Boudin joined Monet and his young friends in the first Impressionist exhibition in 1873, but never considered himself a radical or innovator.

Our papers are loved for their vibrant tonal range and the handmade feel of their beautiful texture. They are 100% cotton based which gives an aesthetic expected with traditional fine art techniques.

All Musée museum quality prints are professionally mounted on 2.4mm acid free art board ready to free stand or frame. Mounted prints also help to preserve the qualty of the edges and keep the prints perfectly flat with no risk of cockling. Cockling is the process by which a print starts to ripple due to changing levels of ambient moisture which are naturally present in the air in all our homes. Also, when you decide to either change your Musée artwork in your frames or swap them out for a new find, a Musée mounted print will stay flat and safe whilst in storage.
