YVONNE CANU (1921 - 2008). STILL LIFE OF WHITE LILACS & CAT.

72 X 64 cm framed. Signed & titled on reverse with exhibition number circled. Yvonne Canu's skill in her flower arrangement is to catch the innate characteristics of the leaves and blooms whilst avoiding any botanical pedantry - a skill analogous to the technique she uses in her landscapes. This painting of White Lilacs & Cat has a continental looseness and grace which remains totally contemporary.

Canu's flowerpiece stands out from amongst her landscapes as an individual and beautifully crafted work with a disciplined harmony of colour and shape. Yvonne Canu was a French painter who belonged to a group of twentieth-century artists who looked to and expanded upon the theories of the divisioniste artists of the late 19th Century. Her paintings usually depict landscapes, harbour scenes and architectural views. Canu studied at the College of Decorative Arts in Paris and after World War II she met and was influenced by several painters, most notably Tsuguharu Foujita and Elisee Maclet. Fujita instructed her in drawing and composition and introduced her to the Impressionists. She was subsequently drawn to cubism and studied alongside Ossip Zadkine at the Academie de la Grand Chaumiere. Canu exhibited examples of her work at the Tribute to Seurat exhibition held at the Petit Palais in Geneva and was profoundly influenced by his work. It was not long before she dedicated herself exclusively to pointillism and adopted the technique for all of her paintings, which are often beautifully coloured and very atmospheric. She exhibited extensively after the Second World War until her death in 2008.
