Boats on the Beach at Étretat by Claude Monet- Art Poster
Forced indoors by inclement fall weather, Claude Monet paintedBoats on the Beach at ÉtretatandThe Departure of the Boats, Étretatwhile looking out the window of his room at the Hôtel Blanquet. The two form a pair that share a palette, subject, and vantage point. In one of his daily letters to his companion and future wife, Alice Hoschedé, dated November 24, 1885, Monet he described firstBoats on the Beachand thenDeparture of the Boats: “In the afternoon, I worked in my room on mycaloges[retired fishing boats covered with tarred planks and used for storage] in the rain, then I attempted to do, always through the window, a picture of the boats departing.”
Monet centered each composition on the boats, combining pastel blues, pinks, purples, and greens to render wet surfaces. The brightly colored hulls of beached crafts lend relative scale to the structures inBoats on the Beach, and the groups of figures at the water’s edge, composed of quick, gestural strokes, register human activity inDeparture of the Boats.
