Weekend Normand


Trouville, separated from Deauville only by a small strip of the Touques River, yet sharing the same pristine shores. Both of the town’s vast sandy beaches set the scene for artists such as Édouard Manet, Berthe Morisot and Eugène Boudin to paint the holidaying Parisian aristocrats, as seen in Boudin’s piece from 1865, Scène de plage à Trouville (Beach Scene at Trouville), which can be viewed at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC.
