Wolter traveled to Southern Europe, where he mainly painted along the Mediterranean. In many paintings the warmth of the Midi is almost tangible. An exception in his oeuvre is this large painting that he made in 1938 of the procession at the chapel Sainte Anne-la-Palud in Plonévez-Porzay, France. An unusual subject, for which he painted crowds of people at the gray church during the pardon, which is a typically Breton form of pilgrimage.
