Seascape at Dawn, 1896 oil on panel by French artist Henri Marius Camille Bouvet (1859-1945). Signed and dated on reverse; location identified on reverse as Mesnil-Val (a coastal town in Normandy). Bouvet exhibited regularly at the Salon de la Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts and at the Société des Artistes Français; he became a member as well as member of the jury of both organizations. While adhering to the academic style of his classic training, Bouvet brought the sensibility of Impressionism to his works. Paintings by Bouvet are held in the collection of the Musée du Petit Palais in Paris.
