Eugene Boudin Jigsaw Puzzles

Painter


Eugène Louis Boudin was the son of a harbour pilot and worked as a cabin boy on a steam-powered ferry between Le Havre and Honfleur at the age of 10. In 1835, the family moved to Le Havre, where Boudin's father opened a stationery and picture frame shop. The young Boudin worked there before later opening his own small shop. At the age of 22, he gave up his commercial work and concentrated entirely on painting. In 1850 he won a scholarship, thanks to which he was able to settle in Paris. There he enrolled as a pupil in Eugène Isabey's studio and worked as a copyist in the Louvre. To earn some extra money, he often returned to Normandy to paint, and from 1855 he also travelled regularly to Brittany. He was one of the first French open-air painters. Boudin was an expert on coastal and marine scenes. Between 1857 and 1858, Boudin became friends with the young Claude Monet. Monet was only 18 at the time and was persuaded to abandon his youthful caricatures and concentrate on landscape painting. Boudin encouraged him in his love of bright colours and the play of light on water surfaces, which are later found in Monet's Impressionist paintings. The two men remained friends throughout their lives and Monet greatly appreciated Boudin's early influence. At the first Impressionist exhibition in 1873, Boudin joined Monet and his young friends.

Birth : 12 July 1824 in Honfleur, France.
Death : 8 August 1898 (at the age 74) in Deauville, France.
