  • View of the Seacoast near Wargemont in Normandy, 1880
    August Renoir (French, 1841–1919)
    Oil on canvas; 19 7/8 x 24 1/2 in. (50.5 x 62.2 cm)
    Bequest of Julia W. Emmons, 1956 (56.135.7)

    While a guest at the country house of Paul Bérard, Renoir was captivated by the seaside views. This area of the Normandy coast, notable for its steep cliffs and weather-swept panoramas, also attracted Monet during the early 1880s. Renoir painted this scene out-of-doors, working quickly to capture the landscape's salient features before the lighting conditions changed.
