Villerville Beach (Normandy)

1877 - 1884. Oil on canvas transferred to panel.
Room 063A

A view of the profile of the Villerville mansion from the beach. The short, impasto and vibrant brushtrokes emphasize the sensation of a fleeting moment that Haes seems to have wanted to capture with this landscape. The highlights that illuminate the ocean mist contrast with the dark range of colors on the horizon and the rocks in the foreground. The drawing, Villerville (D05285), in the Prado Museum collection has made it possible to complete the title of the present work. This painting was one of the works by Carlos de Haes that his disciples donated to the now-defunct Museum of Modern Art. They were accepted by Royal Order of 10 June 1899.
