Scenes from towns (markets, streets, harbours…) from fields (threshing, rivers with skiffs, roosters…) or private scenes in his studio at Fontenay-le-Comte… this epicurean painter painted life and its simple pleasures. It was here in his native Vendée that Jean Chevolleau drew his inspiration and all his energy.

Go looking for inspiration is a fantastic moment of humility and purity.
