Jacqueline Tollet Loëb

Name: Jacqueline Tollet Loëb
Bio: Born in Vincennes, December 20, 1931, to a family of musicians and destined, by tradition, to follow the same path. She initially studied piano, but abandoned it for drawing and painting.
From 16 years of age she attended various workshops in Paris: Rue de Seine, rue de la Grande Chaumiere, rue Lebouteux, taught by Maxence, and Bouchot to name but two. At 20, she began exhibiting as a member of l'Art Libre, at Artistes Français with a portrait of Me Théodore Valensi, then at the Salon Violet. She then tooks as a nom de guerre multiple surnames of her maternal and paternal grandparents Tollet Loeb.
At 21, she won the title of Officier d'Arts-Sciences et Lettres.
At 25, she married and devoted herself to her three children. In 1964, Jacqueline Tollet Loeb left Paris and moved to Normandy where she continued to paint without exhibiting, and then in 1974 she reconnected with the art world in Calvados, especially the Société des Artistes Bas-Normands. She exhibited in many shows: Salon d'Automne in Paris, engravers of Bayeux, of Bas-Normands in Caen, Le Grenier à Sel at Honfleur and on permanent show in several galleries.
In 2005 Tollet Loëb settled near her children in Bordeaux but without really abandoning her friends: she regularly returns to Normandy.
