Marcel Mouly

            Marcel Mouly, now in his eighties, is acknowledged as one of the most outstanding contemporary artists of our century, whose unique style is immediately recognized around the world.  His work is housed in the permanent collections of over 20 museums, including the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, the Museum of Modern Art in Japan, Museum of Modern Art in Helsinki, the Museum of Geneva, and the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris.  Numerous books have been written about Mouly. 

         His first one-man show was in Paris in 1949.  Since that time, he has had over 50 one-man exhibitions internationally including the countries of Brazil, Venezuela, the United States, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, Sweden and Norway. 

         He works with deep powerful colors, which are used in the manner of the Fauvist painters Matisse, Dufy and Derain, however, color and the background architectural structure of the compositions derive from synthetic cubism.  Mouly has continued to gain in reputation and popularity so that today he is recognized as one of the important artists still linked with the great French masters of the early Twentieth Century. 

          We should never forget that he is self-taught and that his art is spontaneous.  He is not the product of any school; he owes his talent only to himself.  He became a master, being his own master.
