Description Eugène Louis Boudin was one of the first French landscape painters to paint outdoors. He joined the first Impressionist exhibition in 1874, but never considered himself a radical or innovator; he was influenced by the Dutch 17th-century masters. He was most famous for the depictions of the coast, but also painted pastoral subjects. This scene of Cows on a River Bank is probably set in Normandy or Brittany.
