Loiseau travelled to Pont Aven for the first time in May of 1890. He befriended many artists in residence there, most importantly Paul Gauguin, as well as Maxime Maufra and Emile Bernard. Loiseau developed a type of 'cross-hatched' technique, called en treillis (latticework), which gave his paintings the supple, almost touchable quality for which he is known.
