In his old age, Claude Monet wrote of Eugène-Louis Boudin as his "Master." It was Boudin who first encouraged Monet to paint out of doors directly from nature, thus setting the younger artist’s course as a founder of Impressionism and renowned painter of plein air landscapes. Take a closer look at this lesser-known master and explore his influence upon Monet’s early work.
