Sold

Of course I would like the works of Marcel Mouly with
all the wonderful brilliant colors he used.  Many times
I am asked if I have larger paintings for this Art within
Art Series so I  decided to do a few that are larger than 11 x 14
my basic size. They are so full of detail that it takes much
 longer to paint but I do have a few even larger coming up.
This one is 16 x 16 and full of brilliance!

I love this painting for all the Red, my favorite signature color.
  Makes me happy! I took elements from several Marcel Mouly
 paintings and did my impression of them to compose this piece.
 Enjoy!


If you see paintings that are sold check with me to see if I
have similar available or I can paint to your specifications.
Original paintings make great gifts for the holidays for those
special people. If you may be interested in a commission please

Please contact me for my holiday schedule.
Ask me about my layaway program.

Marcel Mouly (February 6, 1918 – January 7, 2008) was a French
artist who painted in an abstract style.


Mouly was born in Paris France on February 6, 1918. His Interest
in art developed in grade school. A precocious, mischievous child,
 Mouly was first sent to drawing class as a form of punishment.
However, Mouly loved learning to draw, and exhibited a natural
artistic talent, though his path to a career as an artist proved not to
be a linear one.

Mouly's style was influenced by the deep, bold colors typically used
 in Matisse's fauvist works, and by the cubism of  Picasso. Beginning
 in the mid-1950s, Mouly created many lithographs. And his works
received great interests globally.

Marcel Mouly's work has been exhibited all over the world, including
in the permanent collections of more than 20 museums, such as the
Museum of Modern Art in Paris, the Museum of Modern Art in Japan,
 the Museum of Geneva, the Museum of Modern Art in Helsinki, and
Paris' Bibliotheque. He has also been the subject of numerous books,
and recognized by such honors as the Chevalier de L'Orde des Arts
 et Lettres (1957) and the Premier Prix de Lithographie (1973).

Though Marcel Mouly died on January 7, 2008, weeks shy of his
90th birthday, his art and his legacy live on. "His art is pure and
direct in its message," art historian and writer Joseph Jacobs said,
"it is an art about beauty and life, an art roots firmly planted in the
School of Paris, Picasso, Braque, Matisse, Roault, Vlaminck, Chagall,
Vuillard and Dufy are his patrimony, and he has carried their mantel
with unflagging dedication." At his death in 2008, he was the last
living protégé of Picasso.
