(1910-1989, France)

Jazzed-up postman and part-time spiritualist whose joyous multitudes and landscapes fed off the energies of his hourly practice. It was the spiritualist meetings in the 1950s which led to these mediumistic drawings, and Lonné grew convinced that he was blessed with supernatural powers. Lonné’s shadowy organic structures attracted the interest of Jean Dubuffet, who saw Lonné as an outstanding representative of art brut and bought hundreds of drawings.
