Ganne, Yves

Yves Ganne, Born in Angers, Anjou, France, July 13, 1931.

Ganne studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts of Nantes and with Fernand Léger in Paris. He first received critical notice at the exhibition of the Prix de la Jeune Peinture in 1950, and was awarded the Prix de la Ville de Menton in the same year.

He had his first Paris exhibition in 1954 at Drouant David’s, where he exhibited again in 1957.

He exhibited in London at Tooth and Son’s and in several group shows in France and abroad.

Ganne’s vividly colored landscapes and still lifes have been acquired by the French Government, the City of Paris, and the Musée d’Art Moderne in Paris.


For over seven years, I have highly recommended Solomon Cohen to my clients for all their restoration and appraisal needs. He has restored not only oil and paper art but also ornate antique frames.

Mr. Cohen exhibits great technical skill, professionalism, and impeccable manners. He has been a great asset to the services I can provide in my art sales and framing business. His work has enhanced my professional reputation in the La Jolla art community.

Please feel free to contact me for any additional information you might need.
