10079 Meunier           Discovered 1989 Dec. 2 by E. W. Elst at the European Southern Observatory.
Named in memory of the Belgian sculptor and painter Constant Meunier (1831-1905), one of the principal social-realist artists of the late nineteenth century in Europe. His works show a humanitarian interest in laborers, particularly in the miners of the Borinage and the dockworkers of Antwerp.
