Edmond Charles Joseph Yon (France, 1836 - 1897)

A pupil of Pouget and Lequesne, Yon made his debut at the Paris Salon in 1865 and obtained medals in the following years: 1872, 1875, 1878 and 1879. In 1889 he was awarded a medal in the "L'Expositon Universelle" and was made a knight of the Legion of Honour in 1886.
