Description

According to Professor Kenneth McConkey this picture was painted during Stanhope and Elizabeth Forbes' painting trip to Brittany in 1891 and most likely depicts the beach at Cancale where they spent most time. Elizabeth commented; 'Cancale has certain features in common with our Newlyn... Whosoever loves the Cornish soil must perforce feel drawn towards the Breton land, of which, if one believes the old legends, it once formed a part.' (Mrs Lionel Birch, Stanhope A. Forbes, A.R.A. and Elizabeth Stanhope Forbes, A.R.W.S., 1906, p.44)
