Marmottan Monet: en profane
Images produced without manipulation (DSLR Camera, Canon). They are part of a project I undertook while in Paris (January & February 2018), visiting, registering and studying works in museums and churches (for more information, see here). 
Original works photographed here include details from Eugène Boudin's "Femmes et enfants sur la plage," Berthe Morisot's "Enfants à la vasque" (1886).  
The following quotations are enlightening: 
"M. Boudin nous étalera dans des peintures achevées les prodigieuses magies de l'air et de l'eau. Ces études, si rapidement et si fidèlement croquées d'après ce qu'il y a de plus inconstant, de plus insaisissable dans sa forme et dans sa couleur, d'après des vagues et des nuages, portent toujours, écrits en marge, la date, l'heure et le vent..." (Baudeilaire).
"While form is absolute [not entirely true]... colour is wholly relative [I'd rather say relative to the whole]. Every hue throughout your work is altered by every touch that you add in other place... so that every touch must be laid, not with a view to its effect at the time, but with a view to the result upon it of all that is afterwards to be done... this being so, nothing but the devotion of life, and great genius besides, can make a colourist"(Ruskin/Gombrich).
