"Le départ pour Terre-Neuve" Oil on canvas by Georges Haquette, signed.
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)
