Yvonne Canu
Le Port de Collioure

1919-2021

$24,500Asking Price

About

The port of the southern French town of Collioure is the subject of this vibrant oil on canvas by the French Post-Impressionist Yvonne Canu. The 20th-century painter's pointillist creations are distinctly modern, rendered with painstakingly precise dots of pure color that brilliantly blend together to form a cohesive work of art. This oil exemplifies her distinctive style, which clearly displays the influence of the Post-Impressionist icon Georges Seurat. Canu's use of minuscule points of pigment and bright colors results in this stunning scene full of vitality and light. Born in Morocco in 1921, Yvonne Canu traveled to Paris in order to study at the reputable École des Arts Decoratifs. Following the First World War, she entered the circle of the French-Japanese painter Tsuguharu Foujita and the Impressionist Élisée Maclet, both of whom had a profound influence on the development of her style. She not only experiment with the impressionist style, but also cubism early in her career. However, it would be the great Georges Seurat who had the most profound influence on her artistic aesthetic. Inspired by the artist's masterpiece A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of Grande Jatte, Canu developed the pointillist style of painting for which she is best remembered today. Canvas: 23 5/8" high x 28 3/4" wide Frame: 31" high x 36 1/2" wide
