About this artwork

In 1884 Boudin acquired a plot of land at Deauville where he built a villa for himself and his wife. In this picture, painted towards the end of his life, he has set up his easel in an isolated spot on the right bank of the river, close to a fisherman’s house. In the central foreground, an upturned boat, inscribed with the work ‘Deauvill’, leads the eye into the distance, where the strong horizontal of the bridge contrasts with the diagonal movement of the river.
