The discreet charm of the 19th-century bourgeoisie
The two paintings visible here are part of the past works exhibited in the Villa du Temps Retrouvé in Cabourg. The Convalescent, on the right, is an oil on canvas painted before 1897 by Adolphe Gustave Binet (1854-1897), a native painter from Calvados and a representative of the Norman School of painting during the Impressionist period. On the left, The Letter by Gustave de Jonghe (1829-1893) is an oil on panel painted in 1875. It testifies to the talent for observation and the pictorial virtuosity of this Belgian painter who, all his life, was attached to reproducing the discreet charm of the bourgeoisie in refined interiors.
