Plage à marée basse (c.1850)

Daubigny, Charles-François (1817-1878)

Plage à marée basse (Beach at Ebb Tide)
c.1850 / c.1878
Oil on panel, 35 x 55 cm

Daubigny painted this beautiful seascape in Villerville-sur-Mer in Normandy. On an otherwise empty beach, a lone shell seeker walks along, with a basket on her back. Hague School painters greatly admired Daubigny. His broad brushstrokes and subtle colour nuances were ideally suited to depicting the Dutch landscape. (RIJKS)
