On the Beach at Trouville, 1863
Eugène Boudin (French, 1824–1898)
Oil on wood; 10 x 18 in. (25.4 x 45.7 cm)

This is an early example of the seaside scenes for which Boudin is famous. On February 12, 1863, the year in which it was painted, he wrote to a friend: "People like my little ladies on the beach very much; some hold that in them there lies a vein of gold to be exploited." In another letter he wrote of some beach scenes that were "perhaps not great art but at least a fairly honest image of the world in our time."
