now remembered for having tutored Poussin. He found French art in a stage of transition: the old apprenticeship system was disturbed, and the academic training (Academic art) destined to supplant it was not yet established by Simon Vouet; but having met Courtois the mathematician, Poussin was fired by the study of his collection of engravings by Marcantonio Raimondi after Italian masters. DATE OF BIRTH June 15, 1594 PLACE OF BIRTH near Les Andelys, Normandy, Kingdom of France (Early modern France) (now France) DATE OF DEATH November 19, 1665 Artistic career Upon his return to France in 1859, Degas moved into a Paris studio large enough to permit him to begin painting ''The Bellelli Family''—an imposing canvas he intended for exhibition in the Salon (Paris Salon), although it remained unfinished until 1867. He also began work on several history paintings: ''Alexander and Bucephalus'' and ''The Daughter of Jephthah'' in 1859–60; ''Sémiramis Building Babylon'' in 1860; and ''Young Spartans'' around 1860. Gordon and Forge 1988, p. 43 In 1861, Degas visited his childhood friend Paul Valpinçon in Normandy, and made the earliest of his many studies of horses. He exhibited at the Salon for the first time in 1865, when the jury accepted his painting ''Scene of War in the Middle Ages'', which attracted little attention. Thomson 1988, p. 48 Although he exhibited annually in the Salon during the next five years, he submitted no more history paintings, and his ''Steeplechase—The Fallen Jockey'' (Salon of 1866) signaled his growing commitment to contemporary subject matter. The change in his art was influenced primarily by the example of Édouard Manet, whom Degas had met in 1864 (while both were copying the same Velázquez (Diego Velázquez) portrait in the Louvre, according to a story that may be apocryphal). Gordon and Forge 1988, p. 23 Typhoon Memorial Site On 9 June 1994, in recognition of the aircraft and crew's role in the liberation of Normandy, a Typhoon Memorial at Noyers Bocage (Noyers-Bocage, Calvados) was dedicated by Major M.

The reasons for the waves of immigration were complex and bound to the political situation in Scandinavia at that time; moreover, they occurred when Viking settlers were also establishing their presence in the Hebrides, Orkney, the Faroe Islands, Ireland, Iceland, Greenland, France (Normandy), Russia and Ukraine (see Kievan Rus').
