This is a Barbizon School seascape echoing marine scenes painted by Charles-François Daubigny (1817-1878) during the transition between Romantic and Impressionist movements.

The Barbizon painters are marked by the drive to reveal the authenticity of the peasant existence and the beauty of the nature around them.
