Etretat Stamped Vente E. Isabey; inscribed Etretat Graphite pencil on paper Louis Gabriel Eugene Isabey (French, 1803-1886) was a French Romantic painter. Isabey was well-rounded and created landscapes, portraits and historical scenes with equal grace and beauty. Isabey was the son of painter Jean-Baptiste Isabey, whom he initially studied under and worked with. Like so many other painters, he spent his formative years as an artist studying the masters at the Louvre and also spent a great deal of time in Le Havre on the northern coast of France where he perfected his technique painting seascapes. His works are in all major museums.
