Item Description

Offered for sale is a lovely oil on canvas painting attributed to Eugène Boudin (French, 1824 - 1898).
Boudin was a 19th century French artist best known for his naturalistic plein-air style paintings which frequently depict harbors and coastal scenes with beaches.

The painting depicts a harbor scene with several boats in the foreground with architectural structures lining the shoreline in the distance. The artist has displayed great talent in the depiction of an ominous sky with swirling clouds of grey and cream white hues featuring small openings in the clouds giving sight of a fabulous blue hued sky above the dense cloud layer.
The artistic talent can be further evidenced when gazing upon the turbulent harbor with ripples and small whitecaps.

Boudin worked in the naturalistic approach and the artist marvelously infused light and shadow with intricate detailed imagery enhanced by smooth and fluid brush strokes. The 19th century naturalistic style, plein-air is the most direct predecessor of the Impressionist movement.

Signed E. Boudin and inscribed Anvers to the lower right.
Presented in a carved and gilt finished wood and gesso frame.

Sight: 13”H x 23 1/2”W
Frame: 21 3/16”H x 31 1/2”W

Provenance: Purportedly purchased in 1958 from an art dealer in Amsterdam, where a section of the gallery label remains on verso. Prior to its purchase from the gallery in Amsterdam, the art dealer claimed it had been been part of the illustrious ‘Gulbenkian’ collection.

Condition: There is stabilized craquelure throughout the painting which is common for 19th century paintings and not unexpected. The area over the signature and title appears to have been worked on with a dull greenish hue seen in the lot images just below the signature.
There are stain spots to the verso of the canvas which is gently loose and could stand to be tightened on its stretcher. The frame has missing gilt finished sections with losses to the gesso and gilt finish. Overall the painting presents nicely.
