Georges Binet was born 1865 in Le Havre (and died 1949 in Toulon). He is a French painter known mostly for his Normandy paintings of daily life, including beaches and river scenes.

The notoriety of Georges Binet was built around his work as a landscaper. An artist from Normandy, he depicts the bustling banks of the Seine at the start of the 20th century.

Born in Le Havre, Georges Binet first took painting lessons with Charles Lhullier from Le Havre, then moved to Paris where he frequented the workshops of Louis-Joseph-Raphael Collin and Fernand Cormon.

After this academic training, the painter turned to the manner of the Impressionists. Eugene Boudin, Camille Pissarro and Claude Monet particularly influenced him in the transcription of the fleeting aspects of the Seine estuary.
