Georges Braque first encountered and became enamoured with the dramatic chalk cliffs along the coast of Normandy in 1905, but it would be over 20 years before he returned to the area. Captivated by the silvery light of the Norman coast, the expansive beaches, and the clear horizon, he purchased a house in the coastal village of Varengeville in 1931. The property became his sanctuary, where he could escape the bustle of Parisian city life. It was here that he discovered a new interest in the landscape, becoming receptive to the colours and light of the surroundings. During these sojourns, he produced a series of beach scenes with boats and rocks, of which Bateaux is a fine example. Braque successfully created idyllic compositions in which he was able to marry his impressive sense for modern composition with the tradition of landscape painting.
