A landscape of inspiration along the Normandy Coast of France

 


The white cliffs rising out of the sea at Etretat on France's Normandy Coast played a role in the inventive periods of French painting from the romanticism of Delacroix, the realism of Courbet to Monet's Impressionism through the 1880s. David visits the various inspired viewpoints along the cliff walks above Etretat and below on its beaches to paint a landscape demonstrating principles from those schools of painting. David compares the styles and visions of Etretat's artists to its landscape and reveals the keys to its interpretation.
