Ateliers Henry Dougier : Jean-Baptiste Gauvin : La mer terrible selon Monet


Jean-Baptiste Gauvin, a collaborator of L’Oeil de la Photographie, has just published a book on Monet with Ateliers Henry Dougier. The title: La mer terrible selon Monet. He talks about it like this:

“From September to November 1886, Claude Monet was on the island of Belle-Île-en-Mer, the largest in Brittany. The painter, until now accustomed to the sea of ​​Étretat, faced a new territory: the Atlantic ocean. Belle-Île is the “terrible sea”, with titanic storms, but also a sun that lingers longer than on the continent and gives nature a thousand and one dazzling colors. In the island solitude, Monet had great encounters, like this former lobster fisherman, Poly, who became his carrier and whose portrait Monet painted.” – Jean-Baptiste Gauvin
