pdf epub fb2 djvu



Eugene Boudin (1824-98) was one of the most important precursors of Impressionism. he captured ever-changing skies and water to create masterly atmospheres.;It was Boudin who encouraged the young Monet, in 1858 to abandon the studio and to paint outdoors. Boudin stressed that everything painted directly and on the spot has a strength, a vigour, a vivacity of touch that can never be attained in the studio...Three brushstrokes from nature are worth more than 2 days' studio work.;In the early 1860s, Boudin began to paint the elegant summer visitors on the beach at Trouville. It is these paintings that were to bring him financial success and for which he is famous today. This book explores Boudin's particular fascination with Truville and reveals for the first time in English, this important French artist through his work. It focuses on his small, intricate paintings of holidaymakers and working people at the seaside resort and port; the fishermen, the docks and boatyards; the washerwomen on the banks of the river la Touques; and the wonderful landscapes surrounding Trouville and Deauville.; The book's introduction by Vivian Hamilton, Assistant Keeper of Fine Art, Glasgow mUseums, is followed by several short essays considering various aspects of Boudin's oeuvre. John House of the Courtauld Institute, London, Laurent Manoeuvre, Direction des Musees de France and Liz Arthur, Glasgow Museums, together explore Boudin's modernity and the role of his drawings and watercolours, and take a detailed look at the French fashionable costume of the period as documented in his work.
