Irish painter and stage designer. She was a daughter of the poet William Butler Yeats. Her brother Michael Yeats was a politician.

Anne Yeats trained in the Royal Hibernian Academy school from 1933–36 and worked as a stage designer with the Abbey before taking up painting full-time in 1941. She designed many of the covers for the books of Irish-language publisher Sáirséal agus Dill over a twenty-year period from 1958.

The Royal Hibernian Academy held a retrospective of her work in 1995, as did the National Gallery of Ireland in 2002. The Yeats Museum within this gallery holds her sketchbooks.

Yeats never married. She died on 4 July 2001.
