  MATHURIN MÉHEUT (1882-1958): RUGGED BRITTANY


Come and see the works of Mathurin Méheut, a fiercely driven artist that Colette greatly admired for his style and integrity. This French painter, best known for his depictions of rugged Breton landscapes and seascapes, people toiling, religious traditions and local costumes, was equally at ease creating innovative Art Déco designs and spectacular decors for luxurious ocean liners.
