Biography Yvonne Serruys
Yvonne Serruys (26 March 1873-1 May 1953) was a Franco-Belgian artist. Born in Menen, West Flanders into a wealthy Francophile family, Yvonne studied painting and drawing with Emile Claus. From 1892 to 1894 she studied in Brussels in the workshop of painter Georges Lemmen, a member of Les XX. She then returned to study again with Claus.
After undertaking a tour of Italy and Greece, she exhibited her paintings in Paris at the Salon in 1898. It was at this point that she decided to become a sculptor, a decision which led her back to Brussels where she began new studies with sculptor Égide Rombaux.
In 1904 she returned to Paris where she established her own workshop. Her work included 250 sculptures and over 300 pieces in glass.
