Arts Everyday Living: The Sunset Hour—A Moment of Reflection on the Coast of Brittany

Lionel Walden, Reverie in Brittany, n.d., oil on canvas, Private Collection


American Lionel Walden (1861-1933) and Frenchman Henri Lesbasque (1865-1937), like many of their artistic contemporaries, considered Brittany in northern France as an inspirational mecca, especially at the reflective hour of sunset.
