    During the 19th and 20th centuries, the Breton peasant was a source of inspiration for artists from Brittany and elsewhere. Portrait painting won the favor of many of them as did the representation of work, fields or the farm according to the seasons. Friendly moments of gatherings of peasants on the occasion of markets, feasts and pardons also fascinate certain painters and designers while others are interested in more intimate scenes of interiors or the practice of the faith. The man from the countryside of Faouët, a rural town and a small pictorial town until the end of the 1930s, is also represented in this selection. The exhibition at the Musée du Faouët and the accompanying book offer a discovery of the peasant world in Brittany as seen by artists who, through their detachment from the subject in the last decades of the twentieth century, reveal the profound changes that have transformed the peasant condition. Open in May, June, September and October, Tuesday to Saturday 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., Sunday 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Open on public holidays. In July and August, every day from 10 a.m. to 6.30 p.m. (ticket office closes at 6 p.m.). Open on public holidays.
