|Eugene Boudin (1824-1898)
Eugene Boudin was born at Honfleur, Normandy.

In 1857 Boudin met Claude Monet who spent several months working directly with Boudin in his studio.
He exhibited at the Salons, receiving a third place medal at the Salon of 1881, and a gold medal at the 1889 Exposition Universelle.
In 1892 Boudin was made a knight of the Légion d'honneur.

The Walter H. and Leonore Annenberg Collection, Gift of Walter H. and Leonore Annenberg, 1999, Bequest of Walter H. Annenberg, 2002
The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
This work, painted about 1865–67 on a piece of scrap board, is exceptional in Boudin's oeuvre for its spontaneity and for its identifiable subject, Princess Metternich, the wife of the Austrian ambassador to the court of Napoleon III. The princess, ubiquitous in fashionable society, was famous for her fine clothes and quick wit. She once referred to herself as "the best-dressed monkey in Paris."
