Etretat paintings in GeocodedArt
Laundresses by the Sea at Etretat
Painting by Claude-Emil Schuffenecker (1851-1934). Many of this artist's landscapes appear to be what one might see on a pleasant walk, not necessarily the most impressive vistas. This image is a merger of these approaches, featuring a landmark feature, a spectacular sunset, and common people going about the back-breaking work that was a defining feature of the "good old days".
