In early 1886 Monet painted 36 seascapes at Belle-Ile, an island off Brittany. There is no human presence in any of the paintings. He completed them in his studio at Giverny over the next few months.

These paintings astounded the Paris art world when he first exhibited them in 1887.

Monet signed his paintings when completed with the last colour he was using on his brush.
