Jeannie Dumesnil

Born in 1926 - France


Jeannie Dumesnil (1926-2000).

Has her first shows in 1947 (at the age of 21) in several Parisian salons. Her paintings are figurative in the beginning and evolve towards abstraction in the '60s (a "fantastic inspiration blending dark visions and erotic fantasy"). Eric Mercier place her in the movement of the Jeune Peinture of 1950s.

"The paintings of Jeannie Dumesnil tell the mysterious encounter with the living world and the inanimate world. "
