About the Artist

MADALEINE PLANTEY (1890-1985)

Her works mainly represent dancers, still lifes and landscapes.

Originally from Avignon, Madeleine Plantey followed the drawing course of the Lyon painter Tony Tollet before settling in her own studio in the Rue Laurencin in Lyon.
Her Sunday escapades in the countryside are an opportunity to paint the Rhone landscapes, the flora of which becomes the subject of charming still lifes.
A prolific artist, Madeleine Plantey is particularly known for her representations of the female body, sometimes in ballerinas, sometimes in interior scenes.

In 1939, the Galerie Charpentier, where the greatest painters of her time were presented, devoted an exhibition to her in his private mansion at 76, rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris.
Her female nudes and tutu dancers are particularly well received by critics.

Madeleine Plantey also regularly exhibited in the galleries of rue Auguste Comte in Lyon and presented several of her works in Parisian salons. Her first nude entered the French national collections in 1949 and is currently kept at the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Lyon.
