A French painter who painted at the Cafe Flore in Paris, and was considered the rival of Poucette in Saint-Germain-des-Prs.

The artist tells the story of when Frank Sinatra bought two paintings from her: A Woman in Blue and a Harlequin. "They are $3000 per painting" she said to the singer, and he responded "They're worth at least $4000 each" and promptly paid her $8000 for the two paintings.Producing her most notable work during the 1950s and 1960s, KenÍs collectors famously included Frank Sinatra, Aristotle Onassis, Julius Oppenheimer and Alain Delon.
