Movement(s): –

Norbert Goeneutte (1854 – 1894) was a Paris born painter/etcher, who started out working in a lawyer’s office, but this did not suit him. He then started a life as a painter, travelling through Europe.

He not only was a painter, but he was also a very accomplished book illustrator, he notably illustrated “La Terre” by Emile Zola.

He died quite young, 40 years of age, and was buried next to Vincent van Gogh.

Honfleur was (and is) a very picturesque town, so it saw many artists capturing the beauty of this very scenic town. The reason it has so many tourists is obvious…. it’s very pretty. Here are some of the artists that have come to apply their art in the town (a link, symbolized by a ““, to the artist’s works will appear when published. A “*” indicates that the artist did not work directly in Honfleur but instead worked outside of Honfleur in a nearby town).
