George Maroniez was born in Douai in 1865 and died in Paris in 1933. He was the son of a sugar manufacturer in Montigny en Ostrevent near Douai (Nord). He made a career as a judge until 1905, but at the same time was also a painter and photographer; he studied first under Pierre Billet and then under Adrien Demont-Breton, son-in-law of the famous Jules Breton.
Maroniez would see great success in his paintings of ports in Brittany, Normandy, Belgium and the Netherlands. Yet while the artist was best known for his preference for coastal subject matters, his style departed from typical marine paintings.
His scenes combine a realism inherited from Breton with the figurative richness of Flemish genre painting, both of which he would bathe in the atmospheres of sunset and twilight. His characteristic style would win him acclaim at the Salon and he was awarded multiple medals throughout his career.
