20th-century French School oil on wood panel attributed to Marcel Bertoin (1897-1983). The work has a subtile texture to the touch.
A rare scene of a Breton church before mass. Marcel Bertoin excels in the art of contrasting colors, and creating a specific focus in his scenes. Here the pinkish brown facade cleverly contrasts with the bright colors of traditional Breton outfits to support an impressionist storytelling.
