Historical Context
Capturing Alten’s view of the Spanish coastline drove him to embrace bright colors and large, visible brush strokes, inspired by the Impressionist style that had swept over Europe. The bright shades of blue give dimension to the water and the golden yellow incorporated into the white of the waves and sails show this piece to be a departure from his early work.
People on the beach pulling sailboats to shore. Two oxen are watching from the background.
