In the present painting Basil Rakoczi perhaps comes closest to paying homage to the English modernist Christopher Wood, whose work the artist would have been familiar with through Lucy Wertheim's exhibitions. Wood visited Brittany in 1929 and produced a celebrated series of paintings of the coastal towns and local life with his distinct aesthetic, such as Dancing Sailors, Brittany or Drying Nets, Treboul. Although the present painting is situated in the south of France, it embodies the spirit of Wood with its playful sense of movement and lively incised brushwork (compare also lot 6). It was painted after the Second World War when Rakoczi left Ireland and headed alone to France, heralding a change in style and subject-matter.
