The house of Fernand Maillaud

Fernand Maillaud was a painter and artist at the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th. He was born in the department of Indre but was often drawn to la Creuse to paint its landscapes.

Fernand Maillaud bought land in Guéret on which he had built a house that he calledle Renabec. Here he set up a studio which he used regularly in the summer. Fernand Maillaud's descendants have opened the doors of this fabulous house to the public, and in it you'll find that everything was designed either by the artist or his family: it's a real jewel!

An association of the friends of Fernand Maillaud was set up in the summer of 2012 and it offers you the chance to share the passion for this artist here:
