This unusual travel poster by Moreau-Nelaton a leading impressionist
painter, illustrator, designer and ceramicist, advertises the pardon
of Saint-Jean du Doigt (St. John of the finger). The great Breton
pilgrimage procession with archaeological curios and sea bathing,
and most important Hotel-Pension St. Jean (Vouaux, proprietor). As
with his other works, the artist uses warm pastel colours, hand lettering,
and a classical renaissance treatment of the Saint and his upright
haloed lamp. The overall effect is warm and inviting and speaks effectively
to the pilgrims who should attend.
