Beach Scene, Trouville

The painting shows groups of holiday makers taking the air at the beach. The artist worked a great deal on the Normandy coast, especially at the fashionable resorts of Trouville and Deauville. Two other beach scenes with the same title are also in the Collection, plus a 'Beach at Trouville' of the 1890s. Between 1862 and 1895 Boudin painted a few hundred such frieze-like paintings.
