About Atlantic coast near Benerville

“Atlantic coast near Benerville” is an Impressionist oil painting created by Eugene Boudin in 1897 in France. The artwork measures 54 by 89 centimeters and depicts a landscape. It is part of the collection at the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

The artwork captures the essence of the Atlantic coastline near Benerville, with a lively brushwork that is typical of the Impressionist movement. In the painting, the viewer’s eye is drawn to the contrast between the serene, expansive sea dotted with sailboats and the rugged, rocky shoreline. The horizon is delineated by a soft sky, where the clouds seem to be in gentle motion, reflecting the transient effects of light and atmosphere that Impressionists sought to portray. To the right, the coastline retreats into the distance, speckled with buildings that give a sense of human presence without overtaking the natural landscape. The palette is composed of muted blues, greens, and earth tones, contributing to the overall sense of harmony between land, sea, and sky. Boudin’s use of light and color captures a specific moment in time, emphasizing the fleeting qualities of light that Impressionism celebrated.
