Our gouache depicts a scene from Locronan's Troménie, Horace Cristol having depicted this type of view on several occasions.
Gouache made before his appointment as painter of the Navy.

As a travelling painter, after graduating from the Naval Health School of Bordeaux, he went around the world on the "Joan of Arc" and during the stopovers, he executed watercolours or enhanced drawings published by L'Illustration.
He will thus continue to mark the stages of his travels as a naval doctor with watercolours or colourful gouaches, whose fades and gradations show a sensitive eye.
In France, he works mainly in Brittany where he represents pardons, processions, fishing trips...
He gave up his career as a doctor in the Navy Medical Corps in 1938 to devote himself to his art. He was appointed official Navy painter on 7 March 1942 and took part in the Salon de la Marine the same year.
