Claude Monet painted Cliff Walk at Pourville in 1882. He repeatedly painted the rise of the cliff at Pourville throughout his summer stay. Here, he depicts Alice Hoschedé and one of her daughters looking out toward the sea.
The bleached tonality of the foliage on the cliff marks the season as high or late summer. Full white cumulus clouds float on a blue sky over the sun-warmed green water. The bright salmon pink interior of Alice's parasol strikes a pleasant tonal contrast.
Claude Monet painted the rising cliffs of this coastal town from different points of view. See his painting Low Tide at Pourville near Dieppe in the next section.
