This drawing is one of more than 50 related to the artist's elaborate painting The Apple Market at Landerneau, exhibited at the Salon of 1878 (see photo). The scene is one of several that Lhermitte made focusing on peasants from Brittany, a region in northwestern France that was known for its picturesque traditional dress and its religious piety.
