Jean Chevolleau was fond of race horses and polo matches. As it happens, with the exception of his portraits, rare beach, fishing or older scenes, these are the only themes where man appears, as his paintings are often devoid of human life. But as in the market scenes, the theme is only an excuse for movement.

I would like man to look at what he does not see, for him to stop for a second with a given rhythm, with a range of colour, feeling happy.
