Artist's Description

Trouville-sur-Mer Normandy France

Deauville is considered to be one of the most glamorous resorts along the coast of Normandy. The Promenade des Planches along the beach is perfect for people watching, and with its casinos, race tracks, yachting harbour, golf courses and polo grounds, Deauville has much to offer the visitor.

alongside it Trouville, a charming resort, sits literally next door to Deauville, and is only 15 kilometres from Honfleur. The town’s beautiful buildings line its long beach of golden sand and its boardwalk offers activities for children in particular during the summer months. A traditional working fishing port, aquarium and casinos are amongst the attractions of this year round destination.

Winston Churchill spent the summer of 1906 in Deauville, gambling each night until dawn.

The chic resort of Deauville boasts a casino, racecourses, marinas and the famous beachside catwalk, Les planches – definitely a place to see and be seen.

Both resorts have lovely beaches and boardwalk promenades.

It is one of my ‘Eighteen Visions’ moments and images which will stay with me forever

Low Tide at Trouville is one of the seascapes that Courbet painted on his visit to the Normandy coast in the summer and autumn of 1865. We know from a letter that he wrote to his parents that the vastness of the sea had made a strong impression on Courbet as early as 1841. In another letter to his patron and friend Alfred Bruyas in 1866, Courbet records his joy of a summer holiday at Trouville and the paintings he produced there : “twenty fine autumn skies – each one more extraordinary and free than the last”.
