Talk : Café Art : Eugène Boudin, ’roi des ciels’

08/05/2013 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

| $8.00
A look at the work of Eugène Boudin, important precursor to the Impressionists, especially Monet, whom he encouraged to paint en plein air. Widely known as a marine painter, Boudin also depicted the visitors to the beach resorts of Deauville and Trouville and explored subjects such as landscapes and cattle.

We shall also take a closer look at some of the important works to be seen at the exhibition devoted to Boudin, newly opened at the Musée Jacquemart-André in Paris.
