    Mathurin Méheut spent his life bringing biodiversity to the forefront, through his talent as illustrator, decorator and ceramicist. His illustrated books, filled with elaborate decorative compositions, show the importance of flora and fauna as source of inspiration. The Lamballe museum has chosen biodiversity, in Brittany and elsewhere, as the theme for its latest exhibition of the artist’s work. 100 years ago, Mathurin Méheut came to the Roscoff beaches to paint crabs and aquatic fauna. On the beach or sea, Méheut sketched relentlessly. His highly stylised designs served as models for luxury jewellers, but the artist was also an official painter for the French navy. Méheut travelled the globe and recorded the wonders he saw. Illustrated plates worthy of a marine biologist, fish and exotic plants on ceramics or canvas…an amazing eye for detail and the environment.
