Born and trained in Holland, Jongkind became a pioneer of outdoor painting in France. The immediacy of his broken brushwork and lively color impressed the young Claude Monet. After the two artists pained together along the coast of Normandy in the early 1860s, Monet commented, "From that time he was my real master...It was to him that I owe the final education of my eye."
