Woman from the countryside of Lesneven and her children
Pastel. Signed bottom left.
This work shows a great humanity full of tenderness. This mother has a gravity in her eyes. That of the weight of the responsibility of raising four children in an often modest rural Breton world. This very intimate painting shows us all the talent of the pastelist that is Lévy-Dhurmer. He is undoubtedly a painter of the soul.
