Yvonne Canu was born in Morocco in 1921. She studied at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs in Paris, and after the Second World War met Foujita and Elise Maclet, who both encouraged her in her work. However, the greatest influence on her work were those of the Pointillistes, and in particular Georges Seurat’s masterpiece ‘L’Ile de la Grande Jatte.
Yvonne Canu’s oil paintings follow this ‘divisioniste’ technique of colour analysis employed by late 19th century artists, and like them often depicts seascapes, harbours and river scenes.
She exhibited extensively after the Second World War until her death in 2008.
