About this object

Le Havre is a city in north-western France. Huet travelled extensively in his home country for most of his life, sketching rural areas and the coast. He was friends with the artist Richard Parkes Bonington (1802 - 1828) and other English landscape artists including John Constable (1802–1828), who became a key influence on him.
