This wonderfully illuminated painting dates from the artist's first visit to Brittany in the summer of 1886. Although employing looser strokes, his meticulous use of small flecks of paint in paired complementary colours shows knowledge of the 'point' technique employed by the Neo-Impressionist Seurat and his followers Signac and Lucien Pissarro. He would have seen their work at the eighth and last Impressionist exhibition that same year, where he also exhibited.
