Boats at Menton

Date: 1920s

The sailing boats in the harbour at Menton are painted in a very free and colourful manner. The rich blue sky is reflected in the sea water. The quickly drawn figures give a sense of scale and movement to the composition. The picture is busy with vertical lines of the masts and rigging. A fresh and luminous watercolour full of Impressionism.
