Eugène-Louis Boudin
(French, 1824 - 1898)
This person is associated with: Impressionism

Born in Honfleur, Normandy, Boudin started his career in a picture framing shop in Le Havre where, among his customers, was Jean Millet.For much of his life Boudin painted the beach and marine scenes in and around Honfleur and along the coast of Normandy.These were small, intimate scenes of life on the beach; he liked to concentrate on the luminous skies and beach activity.He would often repeat the same formula as witnessed in his numerous beach scenes at Trouville, for example.

Many of Boudin’s scenes were painted out of doors and he introduced this practice to the young Monet.Although his output is similar in style and subject matter to those of the Impressionists, Boudin is not generally considered a mainstream Impressionist.

His paintings have proved popular and can be seen in most major art galleries.He was a prolific artist and his output is in excess of 4,000 works.However, he is an artist who can be easily copied and due to his popularity, attribution can sometimes prove difficult.
