In early 1886 Monet painted 36 seascapes at Belle-Ile, an island off the coast of Brittany. There is no human presense 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 completing them with the last colour he was using on his brush.
