Eugene Boudin was born on July 12, 1824. Eugene Boudin was born into a seafaring family, and is best known for his paintings of sea and sky. His paintings were in the style of French Impressionism which were painted in oil on both canvas and wood. Boudin began painting at 25 in Paris. His best-known paintings are beach scenes of Brittany, Normandy, and the Netherlands.

Noted for the pervasive clarity and directness of his outdoor scenes, Boudin excelled in depicting nuances of light and atmosphere. He painted from nature, influencing the impressionists, notably Monet, to use this working method. Boudin is represented in the Louvre by several works and in the Metropolitan Museum by Baie de Fourmis, Beaulieu and On the Beach at Trouville.
