Art on the Ocean: Musée du Touquet
Located in the Way Side villa built in 1925 by architect Henri Léon Bloch, the Touquet Museum’s collection covers the late nineteenth century to the present day, notably a selection of works from 1880 to 1914, when a colony of some 200 painters settled in the region of Étaples. They flocked to the Opal Coast inspired by the landscape and light, arriving from England, the US, and also from Norway and Australia, producing some stunning atmospheric seascapes and recording the characters and rhythm of local life.
