Nautical life is revealed in more than 80 remarkable paintings and works on paper by artists such as Claude Monet, Gustave Caillebotte, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro, Maurice Denis, and Paul Signac—Impressionists and Post-Impressionists whose breathtaking artistry reflects a deep understanding of pleasure boating and competition. Their brushwork suggests both the atmospheric effects and the sensations of movement that contribute to these enterprises on the water.
