About The Still River at Deauville

The artwork “The Still River at Deauville” was created by the artist Eugene Boudin in 1895 in France. The piece is an oil painting that falls within the Impressionism movement, a genre well-known for its approach to depicting light and its effects on the natural world. The painting is a landscape, and as of the last available information, it is located in a private collection.

The painting portrays a serene river landscape, capturing a reflection of the sky on the water’s surface that stretches across the canvas. The view is calm, with subtle ripples in the water suggesting a gentle movement. To the left, a cluster of trees and some cattle grazing near the water’s edge provide a bucolic touch to the scene. On either side of the river, we observe open fields with hints of homesteads and vegetation, which give a sense of the rural countryside. The sky, filled with light brushstrokes of blue and white, suggests a vastness and a tranquil atmosphere typical for Impressionist works, where the portrayal of changing light and atmosphere was central. The palette is soft, with natural tones blending together to create a harmonious and contemplative piece. Boudin’s choice of composition and brushwork exemplifies his contribution to the Impressionist movement, effectively capturing the essence of a fleeting moment in nature.
