Eugène Boudin, was born in Honfleur in 1824 and died in Deauville, August 8, 1898. If he traveled all his life the coasts of France from Dunkirk to Antibes, his home ports were in Normandy: Honfleur, then Le Havre, city ​​of his youth and his beginnings, Trouville, city of heart where he stayed a long time and Deauville where he built a small house which he nicknamed "the cage".
The conference evokes this long period, between 1860 and 1898, during which he produced, in Trouville and Deauville, a large part of his work by fixing on paper or canvas the subjects he had before his eyes: the markets, the mouth of the Touques, beaches, boats, fishermen's activity and the changing sky of the Estuary.

Anne-Marie Bergeret-Gourbin, chief curator of the Honfleur museums from 1976 to 2016, is an exhibition curator and author of collections devoted to Eugène Boudin.

A meeting proposed by the Franciscans / Deauville in collaboration with Athena sur la Touques.
