Yves Ganne was born in Angers, Anjou, France, July 13, 1931. He studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts of Nantes and, subsequently, with Fernand Léger in Paris. He first received critical notice at the exhibition of the Prix de la Jeune Peinture in 1950, and was awarded the prestigious Prix de la Ville de Menton in the same year.
Ganne had his first Paris solo exhibition in 1954 at Drouant David's, where he exhibited again in 1957. He exhibited internationally with success and was the recipient of numerous medals, prizes and juried awards. His works have been acquired by the French Government and may be found in the permanent collections the City of Paris and the Musée d'Art Moderne in Paris among others
