Cabin of the Customs Watch was painted by Claude Monet in 1882. The sparse vegetation places this work during his first sojourn to Pourville that year.
Choosing a very high point of view, Monet looks down on the little structure, identified as a fishing hut in other paintings, and follows the roll of the hills that rise above the sea. The cool tonality -- seen in the silvery pink and lilac wildflowers on the hill and the icy, foam-crested waves of the blue water -- confirm the late winter setting.
Claude Monet continued to travel with his easel, painting all along the Normandy coast. See his painting The Cliff at Dieppe in the next section.
