Espace Gaston Chaissac

This attraction portrays the life and works of "art Brut" Painter and writer Gaston Chassac (1910-64), it is housed in the old school house that has been restored to what it would have been like at the time he lived here.
His wife worked as a teacher at the school while Chassac daubed his very primitive paintings in the school toilets (now awarded Historic Monument status).
Inside the old school you will find the resource centre for the educational workshop and the giant blue sugar box which was created by the painter and designer Xavier de Richemont and which features the life and works of Chaissac. There are no original paintings by the artist at the centre save those daubed on the walls of the loos. A good collection of these can be found at the musee-de-l'abbaye-st-croix at les Sable d'Olonne.
