Marcel Mouly 1918 – 2008
After France fell during WWII in June 1940, Mouly, a civilian, earned a living working odd jobs. Befriending artist Bernard la Fourcade, the two established a studio in Auteuil, Paris.
During a trip to Normandy in 1942, due to lack of sufficient documentation – required by the Vichy government, Mouly and la Fourcade were arrested and mistakenly imprisoned as spies.

After his release from prison, Mouly, along with fellow artist Édouard Pignon, rented the Boulogne studio of famed modernist sculptor Jacques Lipchitz (1891–1973). Mouly influenced by Lipchitz, particularly the style of cubism.
By the mid-1940s, Mouly’s art began to gain notoriety from his peers and collectors. In 1945, his paintings were exhibited alongside the paintings of Matisse in the Salon d’Automne in Paris. The following year he moved to La Ruche where he associated with Picasso, Chagall, and Klein, and exhibited at the Salon du Mai.
Mouly’s first solo exhibition was held in 1949 at the Libraire Bergamasque.
With styles influenced by the deep, bold colors used in Matisse’s fauvist works, also the cubism of Picasso. Mouly created a number of lithographs during the 1950 & 60s.
