Situated at the mouth of the Seine, Étretat has long been a favourite subject of painters, attracting such artists as Eugène Delacroix, Camille Corot, and Claude Monet. When Tristam Hillier visited the area, he had been living in the south of France for a number of years after pursuing his studies in Paris. Hillier paints the boats with painstaking precision and clarity, with the landmark cliff in the distant background.
