With its winding coastal pathway, stone walls, and young girls in traditional dress and wood shoes, this canvas shows Moret's devotion to painting the local color of Brittany.
Moret adopted a milder version of the style pioneered by Gauguin and Bernard. His canvas has the meandering curves, striated brushwork, and flat zones of color identified with the Pont-Aven School. Yet when compared with a similar subject by Gauguin hanging in the center of this gallery, Gauguin's bolder manipulation of color and pattern is evident.
