Yolande Ardissone's joyous landscapes are a constant source of pleasure. Her spacious compositions, bringing a choatic world into focus, are characterized by vitaly and candor, precision and clarity, and a complete mastery of her medium - tapering off with abrush stroke here, flattening out her surface with a palette knife there.

Born in Normandy in 1927, Ardissone belongs to the school of painting known as pictorial classicism, although a hint of impressionism is blended into her work as if to capture a fleeting moment in time and space.
