Yvonne Canu Art

French, 1921-2007

Yvonne Canu was known as a Neo-Impressionist or Divisionist painter, who was inspired by and emulated the pointillist paintings of post-Impressionist icon Georges Seurat. Canu studied at the École Nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, and first gained widespread acknowledgment for her work after World War II as part of a wave of talented new French Neo-Impressionists and Divisionists.
