Eugene Boudin - Village aux Environs de Dunkerque
Also available is a signed oil painting by EugŤne Boudin, Village aux Environs de Dunkerque, whose plein air works depicting land and seascapes had a great influence on the emerging Impressionism. Boudin, who late in life successfully exhibited at the Paris Salon and through the famous Durand-Ruel Gallery, spent his childhood along the coasts of Normandy where he later sold works.
