The boat builder's yard, Cancale, Brittany
A scene in a boat builder's yard at Cancale, Brittany, on the north-west coast of France. Brittany had many beach boatyards of the kind portrayed. In the foreground to the right, a girl with strong facial features sits in profile gazing to the left on a carpenter's bench. She wears traditional local dress of a blue serge skirt, grey-and-white-striped chemise and white head-dress, with sabots (wooden clogs) on her feet.
