Normandy cradle of Impressionism

Normandy cradle of Impressionism  |  Deauville, France  |  No wonder why they call Normandy, the home of impressionism. Just look at this photos and make your own conclusions.  Normandy was, for most artists, their birthplace and home. Its proximity to Paris together with the burgeoning number of fashionable seaside resorts like Deauville or Trouville.
Impressionist painters like Claude Monet, Eugène Boudin, preferred to paint outdoors, in natural light, and to concentrate on landscapes, towns and scenes of daily life. They made this region popular and convinced other contemporaries like Renoir, Gauguin and Piccaso, to come and visit and be inspired. (The photo above was taken at my hotel outside Deauville – La Ferme Saint Simeon. This exact house was the inspiration to Monet’s painting.
Enjoy the photos I made during my stay in Deauville. As for me, I have rarely seen skies and sunsets like this. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
