The fishing boats of Brittany is one of Palmer Hayden's favorite subjects. In the summer of 1927, Hayden produced a group of oil paintings, watercolors and sketches from along the Brittany coast. His first images of these are found in several of his sketchbooks from Concarneau in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution.
