On the Beach, Sunset

Eugène Boudin French

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 821

Boudin's masterful and convincing representation of light effects, such as the sunset in this picture of 1865, profoundly influenced the young Claude Monet. The two artists worked together on the Normandy coast the previous summer.
