Henry McCarter illustrated this article in Scribner's Monthly Magazine for April 1898, written by an older colleague Cecilia Waern, who lived from 1853 until 1926.If you Google her name it will help if you can also read one of the Scandinavian languages since she was published on both sides of the Atlantic.

Scribner's ran this full page illustraton of McCarter's in the same issue. It indicates that it was done in Paris in 1896 and has little in common with the Breton travel story by Ms. Waern. I'll include it since it suggests an Easter theme with an indigenous artist of the period trudging along on his own Via Dolorosa.
This would make a wonderful painting. A pity it was probably done in monochrome to be reproduced only in black-and-white.
Breton Woman. A splendid portrait by McCarter even if it might have been drawn from a photo.
A full page layout.
Another full page. No question in my mind that these were based on photos.
This is the most lively illustration in the piece.
Detail of the illustration.
A really nice scenic. McCarter knew how to put together an illustration. We're so used to seeing color printing today that it's difficult to appreciate how good these pages were for the year 1898.
