Bridal Procession at St. Maclou, Rouen (1877)

Medium: oil

Exhibited: Royal Academy, 1877

Athenaeum, 26 May 1877:

Mr. Crowe’s Bridal Procession at St.Maclou, Rouen (389) exhibits the same technical characteristics [as Prayer], but though less agreeable, it has abundence of light, and there is a truly spontaneous sense of humour in the face and air of the big Suisse who marches before the newly-wedded folks. The choice of this subject was surely a mistake on Mr. Crowe’s part, whose ‘serious’ character needs better themes, and fails in trivial ones.
