Boudin, Eugène
(b July 12, 1824, Honfleur, Fr.--d. Aug. 8, 1898, Deauville)

One of the first French landscape painters to paint in the open air, directly from nature. His numerous beach scenes form a direct link between the carefully observed Naturalism of the early 19th century and the brilliant light and fluid brushwork of late 19th-century Impressionism.
