Edmond Charles Joseph Yon (1836-1897)
was born 1836 in Paris. He was a Painter of French and European landscapes throughout the 19th century. He was taught under the watchful eye of the French sculptor, Justin Lequien and was influenced by well-known artists such as Corot, Guillemet and Millet. Yon went on to win his first medal at a French Salon showing in 1875 with a painting entitled ‘Bras de la Seine’ meaning ‘arm of the Seine’, which was painted around the French region of Montereau. Success again in 1879 with his painting entitled “Le Bas de Montigny”.
In 1886 he was elected Chevalier to the Legion of Honor and thereafter he won the prestigious gold medal at the The Exposition Universelle, a World’s Fair held in Paris, from 6 May to 31 October 1889.
Yon continued to exhibit work widely across France and the rest of Europe and enjoyed a successful career throughout his life. His work, often of rustic country scenes and picturesque views around the river Seine depict a beautiful balance of nature and capture the landscape in its most pure and natural state, which is why his artwork remains highly collectable today.
Edmond Yon’s art works are now held in many French and British private collections.
