Young Woman Viewing Paris from the Heights of Montmartre (Jeune Femme Regardant Paris des Hauteurs de Montmartre)
NORBERT GOENEUTTE
French, (1854-1894)

This large work is a fine example of Goeneutte's work as a printmaker. He did not generally record his editions and probably printed them "sur demande." He rarely signed anything in pencil and was content with his red stamp, as was so often the case with Buhot. Marcellin Desboutin is credited with inspiring the artist to make prints and Goeneutte was also friendly with Manet and Dr. Paul Gachet, among others. Ex-collection: Henri M. Petiet.
