The pioneer of the Impressionism Eugène Boudin had his fans, and not the least! « I owe it all to Boudin » Monet would have said. And Corot would have called him « the king of skies ». In short, the Musée Jacquemart André was right in organising this exhibition as a tribute! To be discovered in Paris until July 22, during your stay at the Opéra Cadet.
« Three strokes of the brush in front of nature are worth more than two days of work at the easel » he said. This indisputable master of the sea and of his tormented landscapes will take you along a journey from Honfleur to Venice, with over sixty paintings, watercolours and drawings.
Focussing on plein air painting, and looking for all that is momentary, Boudin is a master of light who will enchant you during the entire spring and until the heart of the summer in Paris! When inventing the beach scene in 1862, he completely focuses on the sea and prides himself to "series", allowing him to reach the threshold of pure painting.
