  • Exhibited
    London, Royal Albert Hall, Allied Artists' Association, 1908.

    This painting was shown at the first exhibition of the Allied Artists' Association (AAA) at the Albert Hall in 1908. Set up by the critic Frank Rutter, the aim of the AAA was to provide a British platform for the display of modern artistic trends akin to that established by the Salon d'Automne and the Salon des Indépendants in Paris, with no selection jury. Billed as the 'London Salon', there was a limit of five works per artist, and there were some 4,000 entries, mostly British. Webb used all of his quota, showing five tempera panels of the same size of Breton folk, which were well reviewed by The Yorkshire Post and Leeds Intelligencer: 'A very effective method is adopted by Mr. Cecil J. Webb in his 'Breton Fisherman' and four other pictures. The initial drawing is left to play the most important part, but is eked out with transparent glazes that give a fine feeling of colour'.
