    Elie Kanaan (1926 – 2009) developed his style in oil painting in his early twenties. He met with well-known painters, including the French painter Georges Cyr. He won in 1957 the first price in painting at the "Salon du Printemps", and the UNESCO's price in 1958.

The influence of his works remained from the atmosphere of Saint Germain-des-Près and Montparnasse, in the 50s and 60s. In 1967, Elie Kanaan received the award Prix Vendôme and was recognized in Europe.
