Geneviève Asse Biography

Geneviève Asse grew up on the peninsula of Rhuys whose landscapes have strongly marked her. Settled in Paris in 1932, she entered the National School of Decorative Arts in 1940. She worked in the Montparnasse workshops and exhibited at the Salon des moins de trente ans and the Salon d'automne. After joining the FFI, she became an ambulance driver for the evacuation of deportees from the Terezin camp. After the war, she returns to Paris and designs for the fabric houses Bianchini-Ferrier, Flachard and Paquin. She meets Samuel Beckett, André Lanskoy, Serge Poliakoff, Serge Charchoune, Nicolas de Staël, Bram and Geer van Velde. Her first solo exhibition took place in 1954 at the Michel Warren Gallery in Paris. She illustrated many writers (Beckett, Frénaud, André du Bouchet, Ponge, etc.). Geneviève Asse, in parallel to her painting, develops an important graphic work. Her research is based on light and space.
