Studies for Dagnan Bouveret's "Breton Women at Pardon"

Study and finish for Breton Women at a Pardon by Pascal Dagnan-Bouveret.

"Study for Women at a Pardon, 1887. Black ink, pencil, charcoal. 
Sketch for the two women on conversation to the far right."

According to Wikipedia, "There are many known photographic studies and drawings both for the Breton series in general, and this work in particular. One photograph shows a grassy area in which the artist had a friend pose, another a view of the church seen here in the background, complete with the festival flags protruding from the lower spire."
