Bonnet Canvassed Artwork by Natacha Toutain – Ayrton Senna


Natacha Toutain, who was the daughter of a talented portrait artist, inherited an unrestrained passion for painting from early on in her life, including sculpture, drawing, photography, music, cinema and everything with regard to art in general.

Not only was her father an exquisite artist, he was also passionate about the cinema and her mother was a singer in the coir at the Notre Dame. All of this provided a foundation for her creativity development which began at a very early age.

Like her father, she launched into portrait painting and very quickly achieved success. She painted icons from around the world and took a keen interest in those from American cinema. Some of her more preferred models included the likes of Marylin, Clint Eastwood, Steve McQueen, Sharon Stone, Brigitte Bardot and the French star Alain Delon with whom she exhibited in 2012 at Fouquet’s.

She also had a great passion for painting animals, and to name a few of her favourites she painted horses, felines and birds of prey, of which she made special collections. She had such huge success that she became a very prominent figure in the art world, the centre of which being Paris, and organized exhibitions in the most fashionable places of the capital.

She was selected in 2007 by Artprice and the Figaro amongst a number of other prominent artists. Through her career she has received numerous special requests from of the great leaders of the twenty-first century including the King of Morocco, the King and Queen of Jordan and the Royal family of Monaco to name a few.

She is best known today for her paintings of Steve McQueen, who she painted with a number of the blue chip items from his car and motorcycle collection.
