This forceful coast scene was identified as ‘Taliferme’ at the posthumous sale of Daubigny's studio in 1878, yet there is no such place in Brittany. Nevertheless, it seems likely that the coastline depicted is Breton, and Daubigny made a number of visits to Brittany - most notably that of 1867, when this picture may have been painted. He was closely associated with the Barbizon School and an early exponent of plein-air painting, as indicated here by his passionate response to atmospheric effects.
