Le Puy A Painting Pilgrim: a journey to Santiago de Compostela

A book by Mark Hoare with a foreword by HRH The Prince of Wales

Walking 1000 miles across Europe, painting daily in watercolour: frequently under an umbrella, often in the lee of an ancient barn or crag or tree. Staying with fellow pilgrims within walls themselves as old as the relentless trudge of passing feet.


This book, fully colour-illustrated with 130 paintings and their stories, describes the fragile diversity of food, landscape and culture which changes subtly between one half-mile and the next across Europe. The paintings were made in 2000 during three and a half months of sun, rain, hail and snow.

This book was published in December 2003 to coincide with an exhibition of the paintings at The Prince's Foundation in London. In September 2004 the paintings were exhibited at Eye in Suffolk and Guildford Cathedral.
