1821 - 1891
Alexandre Dubourg studied with L. Cogniet in Paris and showed work in the Paris Salons from 1859 to 1880. He did not often leave Honfleur, where he painted views of the town, its changing skies, its markets, lighthouses, beaches, quays, narrow houses and so on. These paintings include his Fish Market – Pork Fair. He was a friend of Boudin, and established the Eugène Boudin museum in Honfleur, where he was the first curator.
