An 1894 oil on canvas, Breton Peasant Women, by Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) the French post-impressionist painter. Painted in Brittany. The figures are an excellent example of the cloisonnist style where areas of a single colour are bordered by a thick black border as in medieval enamel work. (Musée d'Orsay, Paris)
