About this work
The Scottish painter Hartrick spent some months in 1886 working in Pont-Aven, an artists’ colony in Brittany. He later published a lively account of his meetings with Gauguin there. He exhibited this view of the back of Gauguin’s studio under the title Breton Laundry at the Paris Salon in 1887.

Many British painters visited Pont-Aven. Like most of them, Hartrick was profoundly indebted to Jules-Bastien Lepage, who specialised in rustic outdoor genre scenes. (Permanent collection label)
