Edward Alexander Wadsworth (1889 – 1949) was an English artist, most famous for his close association with Vorticism. He painted, often in tempera, coastal views, abstracts, portraits and still-life.

He also engraved wood and copper.

In the First World War he was involved in transferring camouflage designs onto ships for the Royal Navy, and after the war he continued to paint nautical themes.

Wadsworth painted several other places in France, which will be featured eventually on this site. A link “” to those cities will appear below.

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).
