Best known for his seascapes and beach scenes, Eugène Boudin (1824-1898) was one of the first French painters to go into nature with his easel to paint landscapes. In his numerous paintings, he focused mainly on depicting the elements and weather conditions. He thus developed a new view of nature that served as a model for the Impressionists and for his friend Claude Monet, who wrote at the end of his life: I owe everything to Boudin.As the years went by, he lightened his palette and brushwork to better render the refl ections of the sky and water. From Normandy to Venice, which he discovered at the end of his life, via the beaches of the north, Brittany and the Midi, everywhere he painted landscapes in motion, in a subtle harmony of coloured greys. A true king of the skies as Corot called him, Eugène Boudin succeeded like no other in capturing unsteady elements such as light, clouds and waves.Laurent Manoeuvre specialises in the work of Eugène Boudin, and self-actively as a painter. He has published several studies devoted to the artist. He has also participated in several exhibitions, both in France and abroad.Accompanying the exhibition of the same name at the Musée Jacquemart-André in Paris (22 March - 22 July 2013).
