Catalogue Note

'As to the "king of skies," I think I've already told you that I consider Eugène Boudin to be my master. I became fascinated with his sketches, daughters of what I call instantaneousness.'

Claude Monet in 1920 to his biographer Gustave Geffroy
(quoted in Eugène Boudin (exhibition catalogue), Musée Jacquemart-André, Paris, 2013)
