Description & Technical information

It was in 1888 that Moret met Gauguin at Le Gloannec in Pont-Aven. Even  though he was destined to be an impressionist painter, meeting Gauguin opened his eyes to the Synthetist experience, from which we can find
obvious traces in a few of his paintings produced before 1900.

In 1889, the date on which "Baignade de mer à Lomener" was painted, Moret mostly lived in his house in Pouldu, but he also o en stayed at Larmor, the town just next to Lomener. It is also during this period that he met
in Lorient Célina Chatenet who would become his wife.
