From Metropolitan Museum of Art:
Breton culture, infused with vestiges of its pagan Celtic past, appealed to Gauguin's taste for the primitive and the exotic. This work is thought to have been painted during his fifth and final visit to the region in 1894, between voyages to the tropics. The brushwork recalls Gauguin’s earlier Impressionist pictures, while the palette evokes his Tahitian paintings.
