Fluttering, multi-color flags help to establish the breezy, carefree atmosphere of this harbor scene by Eugène Boudin. Their dominant reds, whites. blues and yellows are mirrored in the garments of happy Honfleurais rowing below, and reflected by the waters where small figures swim. The son of a harbor pilot, Boudin specialized in seashores and marine subjects, and was one of the few French landscape painters of his generation to insist upon working en plein air. Three brushstrokes done outdoors, he argued, were of greater value than three days working in the studio.
