Recommend this film

Yvonne Robert – une femme qui vient de l’ombre is an intimate portrait of a woman with a turbulent past at an old age with extraordinary wisdom. It is also the life story of one of the last living artists of which some works belong to Jean Dubuffet’s prestigious collection of Art Brut.

Yvonne Robert was born in the Vendée region of France in 1922 into a family of poverty- striken farmers. As the eldest child she had to take over the housework and of the education of her brothers and she does not recall ever having played during her childhood. Her courage and strong character enabled her to overcome rejection caused by her condition as well as the harshness of her daily life.

Due to a creative urge at the age of 54, Yvonne began to paint in order to tell about the twists and turns of her life. In this film, she expresses herself, at age 90, freely and without embellishment, on her life and on life in general with her own thinking, both profound and full of common sense, melancholic at times and at other times full of humor.
