Antique painting of a Christian procession in Brittany,  France. That type of procession is called a 'pardon'.
A pardon is a form of pilgrimage mainly found in Brittany. A pardon is organised on a fixed recurring date, in a specific place and is dedicated to a specific saint. The pardon includes a mass and an outdoor procession to a sacred place following a determined route.
The pilgrims are dressed in traditional Breton costumes. Approximately 1200 pardons are celebrated each year in Brittany.

Here, 5 ladies are depicted in tradional costume on a very grey day. One is holding a procession banner. They are walking in the grass and between rocks (menhirs).

The painting is very worn at the edges. It must have been removed from a frame judging by the shape of the damage.
Some stains and scratches are visible. The paint is cracking in places.
Signed but i can't quite read the name as it has faded.

Size: 50.1 x 50.1 cm / 19.68 x 19.68 inches
