“Monet/Boudin is the first exhibition devoted entirely to the relationship between the great Impressionist painter Claude Monet and his master Eugène Boudin, a leading representative of mid 19th-century French plein-air painting. This joint presentation of their work will shed light on Monet’s formative years while also offering a vision of both artists’ careers and the origins of the Impressionist movement.
The exhibition features approximately one hundred works by the two painters and shows how, towards the end of his career, Boudin went from mentor and master to ardent admirer of his disciple’s boldness, occasionally embracing it as his own. Among their shared artistic interests, the show highlights the painters’ mutual fascination with the iconography of modern life, depicted in scenes of holiday-makers on the beach at Trouville, the changing effects of light which dominated most of their pastels and oil paintings, and finally the semi-wild nature of the coastal cliffs of Brittany and Normandy.”
