Robert Villard ( - )

Robert Villard began his adult life with the First World War. After the war, he confirmed his early vocation as a painter and joined the Cubist movement of the 1920s, participating in the Salon des Indépendants and the Salon d'Automne. He exhibited seascapes and landscapes. This period is very important in his artistic development, unfortunately this part of his work will disappear during the Second World War. From 1941 to 1946, he lived in Nantes and was in charge of a workshop at the Nantes School of Fine Arts before being called by a group of Quimper residents to take over the direction of the Cornish School of Fine and Applied Arts, which he directed for over twenty years. He brought it to the rank of the very first Schools of Fine Arts in France, giving it his all.
