On view

Boudin and Daubigny were the first French artists to make a practice of painting in the open air. Boudin's capacity to render nature's subtle fluctuations caused Corot to call him "king of skies." Boudin taught his technique to the young Monet, and later exhibited with the Impressionists, who owed a great deal to his brilliant exploration of light and atmosphere.
