Description

In 1896, Rivière and his wife moved into their newly completed summer home in Brittany. He selected the location for the house on a high cliff overlooking the sea. Views from great heights, overlooking inlets populated by sailboats, recur throughout his oeuvre from that time onward. After the turn of the century, Rivière continued to make color lithographs celebrating the countryside of Brittany. View of Kermarie and The Port of Ploumanac’h (elsewhere in this gallery) are among of the artist’s final lithographic views of Brittany.
