The house of the painter Henri de Saint-Delis is a place steeped in history.
The artist was born in Marconne in the Pas-de-Calais in 1878 and lived there until his death in 1949. The painter's room, No. 3, located on the first floor and comfortably renovated, follows the curves of Rue du Puits. From its windows, you can see the carriage of the nearby Ferme Saint Siméon - Relais & Châteaux, and hear the pleasant sound of horseshoes striking the cobblestones, echoing the sounds of bygone times.
From the landing, which led to his dwelling, Henri de Saint-Delis painted Norman still lifes composed of flowers and fruits from the property. From the garden, he depicted the south-west façade and the welcoming wooded setting of the mansion.
