The Port of Boulogne by Moonlight
Historical and astronomical research has demonstrated that it was produced about midnight on the night of 3-4 August 1868 from a window of the Hôtel Folkestone on the quay at Boulogne-sur-Mer during one of the artist's regular summer stays in the town. It shows a fishing boat returning at night, watched by the fishermen's wives. Its shadows and light pay tribute to the work of Rembrandt.
