In 1857 Eugène Boudin befriended a lowly caricature artist named Claude Monet and instilled in him a love of brilliant landscapes and the play of light on water. “Come over,” he urged, “I want to show you Honfleur; I want you to see the light.” 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 said, were of greater value than three days working in the studio. His bright hues, fluid brushwork and passion for the shimmering beauty of the French shoreline were the rich soil that nurtured the first flowers of Impressionism.
