Marcel Mouly
Nude in a Green Room

1970

About

Signed lower right, "M. Mouly", and dated 1970. Titled, verso, "Nu a la Chambre Verte" and inscribed "Paris 1970". A substantial, oil interior scene showing a woman nude and seated in a doorway and, in the foreground, a table laid with an azure tablecloth, goblets, platters of food, and a candlestick. The last living student of Picasso and a protégé of Fernand Leger and the sculptor Jacques Lipchitz, Marcel Mouly was a towering figure in the second generation of the School of Paris. A friend and follower of Braque, he was also influenced by Matisse in his Fauve use of color. Mouly first exhibited in Paris in 1935, after initially studying at the French Academies and, in 1943, he had first showing of two paintings at the Salon d'Automne. His first public one-person show was in 1949 at the Libraire Bergamasque in Paris. Over the course of a long career, Mouly exhibited widely and with success and was the recipient of numerous prizes, medals and juried awards. His works are held in the permanent collections of over twenty national museums, including the Musee Nationale d'Art Modern in Paris, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Modern Art in Japan, the Museum of Geneva, the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris and the Los Angeles County Museum, among others. Among his notable decorations, he was, in 1957, invested as Chevalier of the Ordre des Artes et Lettres and, in 1973, was awarded the Premier Prix de Lithographie. The painting is accompanied by a first-edition copy of "Marcel Mouly: Light and Color" by Richard Hart (238 pp; published by Art Intrinsic, 2013).
