This week, Plazzart is taking you on holiday…at the beach !

The sun, the plaza, the surf…Inspired ? Well, you are not alone ! The see, unpredictable and ever shifting, has always delighted artists.

Whether they were marine painters or simply on a sailing holiday, artists such as Eugène Boudin, Albert Marquet or Salvador Dalí have very often found inspiration by the shore.


Swimsuits ready, set ? Go !

Up until the middle of the 19th century, the sea is a frightening environment. Then, a shift in attitudes operates in the collective consciousness, expressing a new sensibility for this element which has remained little known up until now.

The emergence of swimming in the sea and a better oceanographic knowledge then leads artists to take over this subject and represent it either true to life, or with fantastical or dreamlike elements.



Albert Marquet (1875-1947)
