Mathurin Janssaud ( - )

Mathurin Janssaud

Born in Manosque, Mathurin Janssaud left his native Provence for Brittany and its special light. Concarneau became his home port. He belonged to the group of painters attached to this town, along with Alfred Guillou, Théophile Deyrolle, Henri Barnoin, Fernand Le Goût-Gérard...

He endeavoured to transcribe light and movement, often in pastel and more rarely in watercolour. His favourite theme was the life of Breton ports at the time of sail fishing and peasant women in headdresses.
