Mireille with a jug - Mireille a la cruche
Mireille with her jug is dressed in the traditional dress of Arles.
In the early 19th century Frederic Mistral wrote a romantic poem Mireille. Charles Gounod based his opera Mireille on Mistral's poem. The essence of the story revolves around Mireille and her forbidden lover, Vincent - the basket-maker from Vallabrègues. Vincent as a basket-maker is perceived by Mirielle's father, a farmer, to be beneath her station. Both the poem and the opera are a story rich in the tapestry of Provencal traditions, beliefs, and customs.
