Albert Marquet
Honfleur Harbour. 1911

Honfleur is a port and resort on the coast of Normandy, where Marquet worked in 1911. The artist's minimalist manner enables him, with the use of a few accents such as sunlight glinting on water, the angle of a sail, and fluttering flags, to suggest the sea breeze, the atmosphere of a sunny day and the festive mood of a public holiday.
