Collection privée, Irlande

Aloysius O'Kelly was one of the earliest Irish painters to travel to France, enrolling at the École des Beaux-Arts in 1874 under the grand master of the period, Jean-Léon Gérôme. O'Kelly was himself to produce a body of Orientalist work but his career was diverse, also encompassing realist genre scenes and more Impressionist-inspired townscapes and seascapes, as evident in the present work. O'Kelly first visited Concarneau in Brittany in 1876, where the local fishing ports and villages inspired a number of works. O'Kelly continued to visit Brittany through the 1880s and turn of the 20th century, and exhibited in France. He travelled widely in Europe, North Africa and eventually to New York.

Aloysius O'Kelly fut l'un des premiers peintres irlandais à se rendre en France, s'inscrivant à l'École des Beaux-Arts en 1874 auprès du grand maître de l'époque, Jean-Léon Gérôme. O'Kelly devait lui-même produire un ensemble d'œuvres orientalistes, mais sa carrière était diversifiée, englobant également des scènes de genre réalistes et des paysages urbains et marins d'inspiration plus impressionniste, comme en témoigne la présente œuvre. O'Kelly s'est rendu pour la première fois à Concarneau en Bretagne en 1876, où les ports de pêche et les villages locaux ont inspiré un certain nombre d'œuvres. O'Kelly a continué à visiter la Bretagne dans les années 1880 et au début du XXe siècle, et a exposé en France. Il a beaucoup voyagé en Europe, en Afrique du Nord et finalement à New York.
