Robert Chailloux was a remarkable French artist renowned for his delicate still lifes. All the charm of pastoral France was softly and timelessly captured within his paintings, and his beautiful rustic fruits and floral subjects were often taken directly from his gardens or carefully selected from the local market. Chaillouxs studio was an Aladdins cave of treasures; he collected many fine examples of French provincial pottery and objects which provided limitless opportunities for their use in his compositions.Chaillouxs talent for painting was evident from a young age. In 1940, Chailloux became a member of the Salon des Artistes Franais, and exhibited at the Salon in Paris throughout his career. His works achieved numerous accolades during his lifetime and can now be found in many notable private collections.
