Ships in a Harbour, Eugene Boudin (1824-1898) Featured Print

Ships in a Harbour, Eugene Boudin (1824-1898)

Oil on panel, French School, 19th century. Eugene Louis Boudin was one of the first French landscape painters to paint outdoors. Boudin was a marine painter, and expert in the rendering of all that goes upon the sea and along its shores. Corot called him the king of the skies'. He first exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1853 and late in his career began to receive prizes and accolades for his work. In 1857/1858 Boudin befriended the young Claude Monet, then only 18, and persuaded him to give up his teenage caricature drawings and to become a landscape painter. He helped to instil in him a love of colour and light and of how these can be enhanced by their reflection in water. The two remained lifelong friends and Monet later paid tribute to Boudin's early influence. Boudin joined Monet and his young friends in the first Impressionist exhibition in 1873, but never considered himself a radical or innovator. Boudin was made a member of the Legion d'Honneur in 1892

Beating the Waterbounds, Truro, Cornwall. Early 1900s Featured Print

Beating the Waterbounds, Truro, Cornwall. Early 1900s

Beating the Waterbounds, on the river boundary. The ceremony also includes the re-cutting of the letters T B on the boundary stones at Tarra Point and Messack Point by the Mayor, so as to maintain their legibility. Beating the Bounds is an old tradition whereby officials of the parish share their knowledge of the boundaries of their territory. Sometimes prayers would be offered for the protection of the fields and land, and to bless the land to ensure fertility. Photographer: Unknown
