Yahne Le Toumelin,
Painter, watercolourist, theatrical scenery and costume painter, born Paris 27 July 1923 (French School).
Born in Paris, but daughter of a sailor (and sister of the solo yachtsman of the same name), she spent most of her childhood in Le Croisic, and her name places her origins in the seafaring community.
She began by attending the Academie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris in 1944. From 1950 to 1952, she carried out some graphic work for the Institut Français in Mexico.
We may add that since 1968 Yahne le Toumelin has joined a Tibetan monastery, thus completing the spiritual portrait of a painter of whom Andre Breton wrote, as early as 1957: "The success of a work depends on the interior 'state' (assuming the balance to be at the highest degree of tension towards wisdom) of its creator".
From "Dictionaire des Artistes". (Benezit)
At present Yahne Le Toumelin continues playing with the light in the Périgord.
