This peaceful painting depicts Cherbourg Harbour with the blues and oranges of sunset covering the whole canvas. These muted colours lend an air of tranquillity to the piece denoting that the day is coming to a close. In his later years, Othon Friesz often portrayed this vista, fascinated by the comings and goings of the boats. One can almost imagine the artist sitting on the quay, painting the view before him.
