  • Description: Throughout his early career, Monet made frequent trips to the Normandy coast. In February 1882, he stopped in Dieppe to sketch its pebbled beaches and the nearby cliffs at Étretat. In Port of Dieppe, Evening, Monet painted the old harbor town looking back from the battements as the sun set over the bell tower of Saint Jacques. Dieppe eases into darkness, but the twilight sky radiates luminous reds, yellows and greens that are reflected in the stillness of the icy harbor. Monet would remain fascinated by the transitory effects of natural light his entire career.
