Constant Le Breton (1895 - 1985) devoted to painting his entire life which coincided broadly with the XXth century.

His pictures are classical in style. A self-made man, he was influenced by masters such as Chardin and Manet. He thought that painting required skill. His works are as far from the conventional as they are from the abstract.

Like all great artists, he defies classification. He excelled in portrait painting without confining himself to it. His originality is derived from feeling and not from bold new techniques.

The work which he left us is flooded with the joy of life and with the beauty of nature, far removed from the fashions and excesses of his time.
