Jaroslav Špillar was one of the leading painters of the Chodsko region. Jindřich Šimon Baar characterized his work with these words: "Jaroslav Špillar, he was not such a fleeting painting bird who simply made love and let go. Špillar really fell in love with Chodsko. He "buried" himself in a small village and was satisfied with the simple life. He studied Chodsko, observed, painted. He searched for models for his paintings at every opportunity. He met ordinary people in pubs, at festivities, during spinning yarn and processing feathers, in the field, on pasture, and in these wanderings he learned to understand the people, to know their souls and to love them."
