Braque painted this scene from memory in the spring of 1909, and it is a great example of the way in which Braque, as well as other cubist painters, created a textured mat of forms in the sky. Instead of an open space, filled with color, the sky in the Harbor in Normandy is just as full of forms as the landscape in the painting. It marks a new moment in spatial sensation, the whole painting with all the elements, from the lighthouse, boats and sky, are brought to life by the interaction and shading of their planes.
