Les Petites-Dalles is a small bathing resort near Fécamp that is known for its shining white cliffs. Claude Monet chose a perspective that emphasizes their monumentality. For him the cliffs were not just a motif, but also a projection surface for reflected water and sunlight. The strong contrasts of color heighten the dramatic effect of the scene, in which Monet indicated the bathers using just a few dabs of paint.
