Eugène Boudin

1824-1898 France-Impressionism

 

Brief Biography-Eugène Louis Boudin was from Deauville near the port of Honfleur in northwest France. His father was a sailor and Eugene's early life was seafaring until he found an interest in painting. With the sea in his blood he became a marine artist and in 1850 he won a scholarship that allowed him to move to Paris.
He became friends with the Dutch artist Johan Jongkind who had a strong influence on his work. Jongkind persuaded him to paint en plein air. He later became friends with Claude Monet who was influenced by his work. He exhibited regularly in Paris winning several awards and by 1892 he became a knight of the Légion d'honneur. Throughout his life he toured Europe at length before finally settling in Deauville.
