Yesterday Mr P and I went to the Chateau de Rohan in Pontivy.
The present chateau dates back to 1479.
Inside are the most amazing fireplaces from the 16th century and came originally from a chateau near Vannes.
The colours and details are just wonderful.
There is also a small chapel containing a typical Breton altarpiece which came from a church within the town.
Each summer art studies are run within the chateau for young people and it was very interesting to see the work and to see how they'd been inspired by their surroundings.

I really liked this large painting which, although so abstract , is so influenced by the colours that are in the fireplaces and altar.
Inspiration and how it moves us so differently is fascinating.
