Yves Diey (French, 1892-1984) was a painter of nudes, figurative studies and genre scenes. His depiction of the female form was done with caring and happiness. There was an element of gallantry in his works. He exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Francais, where he received a special award in 1942. His auction history has many pieces sold for between $1,000.00 and $2,400.00, with his top auction price being $6900.00. This particular piece has a wonderful face. Many of his paintings are not as well defined. This lovely lady in pink is happiness personified.
