Jean Le Moal has known Brittany since he was nineteen and he is fascinated by the sea.  This careful observation supports him in his gradual development from figurative work in the open to non-figurative work in the studio.  A painting such as Douarnenez appears to be one of the first landmarks toward abstraction, when the figuration appears at the limit of legebility.
