Painter Eugène Louis Boudin was famous for his seascapes featuring ports and beaches. The artist’s paintings were full of positivity and offered a poetic impression. Boudin was named the “King of the Skies” by landscape painter Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot. French literary scholars like Charles Baudelaire also applauded his paintings. Boudin was the first French artist to experiment with the plein air painting technique. This timed Bonhams Skinner auction presents an oil painting by Eugène Boudin. Les Bords de la Touques à Trouville Pendant les Grandes Marées portrays a coastal scene during a high tide. The available painting depicts the influence of 17th-century Dutch masters on Boudin’s work.
