La Plage de Trouville (1865) is a clear indication that Impressionist Eugène Boudin seemed to enjoy painting fashionable beach resorts crowded with tourists on seaside vacations. He had a sharp eye for detail and color, allying himself with the new modernists who painted subjects of contemporary life. He portrayed the scene as he saw it, disdaining narrative and anecdote and presenting the figures as part of the setting.
