Eugene Boudin - Artist's Biography

Eugène Boudin was born on July 12th 1824 in Honfleur, the Normandy region of France. He was born into a family whose life revolved around the sea: both his mother and father made their living in the maritime community, his father eventually becoming a captain and his mother working as a stewardess.

In 1835 his family moved to Le Havre, where after retirement his father established himself as stationer and frame-maker. The young Boudin began working the next year as an assistant in a stationery and framing store before opening his own small shop. There he came into contact with artists working in the area and exhibited in his shop the paintings of Constant Troyon and Jean-François Millet, who, along with Jean-Baptiste Isabey and Thomas Couture whom he met during this time, encouraged young Boudin to follow an artistic career. At the age of 22 he abandoned the world of commerce, started painting full-time, and travelled to Paris the following year and then through Flanders. In 1850 he earned a scholarship that enabled him to move to Paris, although he often returned to paint in Normandy and, from 1855, made regular trips to Brittany.

Dutch 17th century masters profoundly influenced him, and on meeting the Dutch painter Johan Jongkind, who already made his mark in French artistic circles, Boudin was advised by his new friend to paint outdoors (en plein air). He also worked with Troyon and Isabey, and in 1859 met Gustave Courbet who introduced him to Charles Baudelaire, the first critic to draw Boudin’s talents to public attention when the artist made his debut at the 1859 Paris Salon.

In 1856/57 Boudin met the young Claude Monet who spent several months working with Boudin in his studio. The two remained lifelong friends and Monet later paid tribute to Boudin’s early influence. It was after watching Boudin, “apprehensively and then more attentively,” that Monet realised that (quoted in G. Jean-Aubry & Robert Schmit, Eugène Boudin, Greenwich: New York Graphic Society, 1968, pg. 27):

“…it was as if a veil had been torn from my eyes. I had understood, I had grasped what painting could be. Boudin’s absorption of his work, and his independence, were enough to decide the entire future and development of my painting.”

Boudin joined Monet and his young friends in the first Impressionist exhibition in 1874, but never considered himself a radical or innovator.

Boudin’s growing reputation enabled him to travel extensively in the 1870s. He visited Belgium, the Netherlands, and southern France, and from 1892 to 1895 made regular trips to Venice. He continued to exhibit at the Paris Salons, receiving a third place medal at the Paris Salon of 1881, and a gold medal at the 1889 Exposition Universelle. In 1892 Boudin was made a knight of the Légion d'honneur, a somewhat tardy recognition of his talents and influence on the art of his contemporaries.

Late in his life he returned to the South of France as a refuge from ill-health, and recognising soon that the relief it could give him was almost spent, he returned to his home at Deauville, to die within sight of Channel waters and under Channel skies.

 
 

About Willow Gallery


Willow Gallery first opened in Weybridge during the late 1980s, dealing in British and European 19th century paintings. Since relocating to London’s Duke Street, St James’s in 2006, the business has expanded both its client base and range of stock, and now sells work from the 1830s to the 1980s.

With an exhaustive global knowledge of the constantly fluctuating art market, full in-depth research of any painting purchased, and a keen eye for only buying exceptional paintings in excellent condition, we are able to procure works that represent superb value for money. With a vast network of contacts throughout the globe, we are aware of paintings long before they are available on the open market. Before acquiring a painting, a member of staff will usually travel to wherever it may be, to personally evaluate the piece and confirm that it fulfils all relevant criteria concerning quality, price, and condition. Clients quickly become aware that they are buying a painting that has had a thorough assessment from Willow Gallery, and realise the value of such expertise in ensuring that they are completely happy with their purchases.

The services that the gallery provide extend far beyond the moment of sale. To ensure that the paintings look their best in their new environment, we can provide a full installation service. We work with a number of lighting consultants and can also arrange to have the work hung by experts to ensure complete peace of mind. Advice can also be given regarding framing, cleaning and conservation. We will on occasion take pieces on consignment to sell on clients’ behalf.

Willow Gallery is perfectly placed to look to the future with confidence. With a location in the most sought-after street in the traditional art world, and a strong presence in numerous fairs both in the UK and abroad, our client base continues to expand as numerous buyers join us on our journey.
