Market at Concarneau
Robert Henri

The American painter Henri worked at Concarneau in Brittany during the summers of 1889, 1894 and 1899. The front of this painting represents the market in the town, while the reverse depicts a seascape painted on the nearby coast.

This panel is typical of the small, freely-painted works produced by the artist at Concarneau, and both sides would have been painted on the spot. The smudges on the back suggest that it was painted first, and that the panel was then turned over before it was dry.
