Breton Fisherwomen

1905. Oil on canvas. Room 060

Considered one of Benedito’s finest works by critics, this canvas depicts a group of picturesque women on the coast at Concarneau in Brittany. Benedito went there with Sotomayor during his time as a grant student in Rome, attracted by the distinctive culture of north western France which had already captivated numerous other European artists.
