arcel Mouly was a French painter associated with the Fauvism movement of the early 20th century. His colorful, abstracted paintings were influenced by both the Cubism of Pablo Picasso and the bold palette of Henri Matisse, and were shown alongside the latter’s paintings in the Salon d'Automne in Paris. Mouly was born on February 6, 1918, in Paris, France and left school at the age of 13 to work, taking night classes in drawing on the side. After serving in World War II, he established a studio in Paris and, by the 1940s, Mouly’s work had attracted critical acclaim. In 1957, he was awarded the Chevalier de L'Ordre des Arts et Lettres, and today his works are held in major institutions around the world, including 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 Nationale. He died on January 7, 2008, in Paris, France.
