Still-life with conkers

A. (Alexis) Vollon

This still-life by Alexis Vollon was painted on board, and probably soon afterwards laid on canvas. Vollon used his fluent brushwork to create an evocative depiction of several conkers in their husks and the leaves of a horse chestnut. 

About the artist

Alexis Vollon (1865-1945) was the son of painter Antoine Vollon, who specialized in painting still-lifes. As could be expected, he trained to become an artist with his father. Early in his career, his talent was recognized. 

He exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Français regularly, and received several prizes for his work.
