Nostalgic scene of goodbye. Excellent condition. Original frame. Signed low left and dated 1884Size: 33 inches (h) x 25 inches (w) canvas. 43 inches (h) x 36 inches (w) framed.BIO: Georges Haquette was born in Paris in 1854 and received his artistic training from Aime Millet (the sculptor) and Cabanel – two important artists of the 19th century. It was from Cabanel he mastered the art of figure painting and his choice of subject matter was greatly influenced by many of the French Realist artists of his time, included Courbet and Millet. The theme of the peasant was a favorite among the artists of the time, but while most were concentrating on peasants harvesting the fields, Haquette chose to portray the harvesters of the sea. He made his debut at the Paris Salon in 1875 and exhibited there throughout his lifetime, receiving an honorable mention in 1878, the third class medal in 1880 and the second-class medal in 1901. Among his exhibited works were: Un homme à la mer! (1886), La femme du matelot (1887), La levée des filets (1888), Départ pour la pêche (1889), La levée du Chalut (1891) and À la côte (1900).A review of the 1889 Salon exhibition included the following remarks about his painting Départ pour la pêche (Putting out to Sea) –– M. Georges Haquette, with “Putting out to Sea”, in which… we see a barque being launched with strenuous efforts of arm and shoulder by a few stalwart men.The catalogue for the 1893 Salon exhibition included the following: Among the “sailors”, Mr. Haquette is of those who has most and better observed the character of our coasts’ fishermen as well as the marine life itself. “Retour au port” (Return to Port) has the smell of spindrift, this is a “good catch”, it is at the same time just in effect, in sentiment and in attitude; this little pensive ship-boy already possesses the seriousness of the old sea-dog, and the old-salt, whom is at the helm, thrown back and bending his back, his head behind, is one of our old acquaintance from the seaports.Haquette continued to paint and exhibit at the Paris Salon until his death in 1906. Today examples of his work can be seen in museums in Brest, Dieppe, Mulhouse, Pontoise, and Rouen."ATTENTION: The auction is in USD (US Dollars).
