The Hut in Trouville
1240 x 1014 • 343 KB
Monet painted this work on the Normandy coast in a region he had known well since his youth and in a location where he had met several of his friends who influenced him in his early years - Boudin, Jongkind and Courbet. There is a similarity with 'The Customs Officers Hut' that Monet painted in 1882 in Varengeville: the composition with its high line of the horizon, the cliff on the left and the site and shape of the hut.

Our Approach:
Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
