Alfred Stevens: 'Storm at Honfleur'

Explore the paintings

From 1880 Stevens made regular trips to the Normandy coast for the sake of his health; he suffered from a bronchial condition. The subject of this painting was recorded on a photograph in the artist's possession as 'Bad Weather at Honfleur'. The bold and spontaneous way in which this is painted suggests that, like many of his contemporaries, Stevens was influenced by the vibrant seascapes of Corot.
