Beaulieu, La baie de Fourmis (Beaulieu, The Bay of Fourmis)
Oil on canvas, 54.9 x 90.2 cm
Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

Painted in the small town of Beaulieu on the French Riviera in March 1892, this canvas was shown soon after, with two other seaside views, at the Salon of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts. Relatively unaffected by developments in painting in his time, Boudin used a conventional compositional arrangement. (MET)
