Art Review - "Pardon in Brittany" by Gaston La Touche

Today's #MuseumTourTuesday features a painting at The Art Institute of Chicago by French artist Gaston La Touche.

It's a dreamlike painting, depicting a penitential pilgrimage, where the light comes from both natural twilight and candlelight. What I especially love about the painting is the way in which the figures combine into one form, except of the woman on the horse. It almost appears as if she is riding through a field of flowers.
