Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    Collection of Pacific Union College, Angwin, California, circa 1980
    Private collection, San Francisco, California

    According to the artist's granddaughter, these four works were painted in Etaples, a fishing village and art colony in Pas-de-Calais, Picardy where Couse and his wife lived from the spring of 1893 to the spring of 1896. Pas-de-Calais is known as the Opal Coast and it was the opalescent quality of the light that attracted artists to Etaples. This was a quality Couse particularly loved and is reflected in these four examples.
