Through this monographic exhibition, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum offers us the opportunity to discover the relationship between the impressionist painter Claude Monet and his teacher Eugène Boudin, a prominent representative of French outdoor painting.
The exhibition brings together some one hundred works by the two painters, highlighting how Boudin’s initial teaching had evolved into admiration for his disciple Monet at the end of his career. This joint presentation of their art sheds light on the period when Monet was learning, and on the origins of the impressionist movement.The two artists shared common interests, for example: a mutual attraction towards the iconography of modern life, reflected in scenes of holidaymakers on the beach at Trouville; the changing effects of light; and the semi-wild nature of the cliffs on the coasts of Brittany and Normandy.
