Anne Bonnet (16 May 1908 – 14 November 1960) was a Belgian painter.
May 16, 1908
|Died||November 14, 1960 (aged 52)|
Born Anne Thonet in Brussels, she began her studies in art in 1924, but was obliged to abandon them in 1926 on the death of her parents. In 1930 she married Louis Bonnet, a dealer in silk, and her financial situation allowed her to return to art. In 1936 she resumed art studies under Jacques Maes and held her first exhibition in 1938.
Her work was selected to be on show at the Documenta II exhibition in Kassel alongside other Belgian abstract artists like Henri Michaux, Michel Seuphor and Marc Mendelsohn. She was represented by three artworks: Vestiges (1956), Vestiges Grises (1956) and Hélianthes (1957).
Her iconic La ville d'or is held by the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium.
