Catalogue Note

Pokhitonov made regular trips to the Belgian coast from Bressoux where he had settled in 1893, and in 1895 he rented a cottage in the dunes of La Panne where he and his family spent the summer. This coast evidently captured Pokhitonov's imagination and he became adept at painting the changing light on the sand and sun, as well as the fishermen, locals and holiday-makers who were also drawn to the area. The present work is thought to date to 1895, making it one of the earliest in this series.
