Born in 1923 in Vannes.
Lives and works in Paris and in l'Ile aux Moines.

Painter and engraver. In 1998 the Museum of Art and History of Geneva organises an important exhibition of her engravings and books for her critical catalog of engravings, Geneviève Asse, l'oeuvre imprimé, 1942-1997, edited by Rainer Michael Mason.
Catherine Putman edited her engravings since 1999. Today, the gallery also exhibits drawings and paintings on paper of her.

"I like painting up to the eye's point, the same for drawing; that is to say up to the extreme, to the most critical level. When I engrave, I think I can justifiably reach this extreme critical point that attracts me."
