Elegant company

Norbert Goeneutte (French, 1854-1894) – Elegant company on the riverbank (Oil on panel) – Goeneutte frequented the Père Lathuille, a cabaret, where he met Manet and was introduced to the artistic circle at the Café de la Nouvelle Athènes. He soon began exhibiting at the Salon. Here, the lady puts aside her reading to enjoy the river or perhaps she is awaiting a suitor, for which she will be the “elegant company.”
