Biography from Papillon Gallery:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Raymond Moisset was born May 21, 1906 in Paris.  His formal training began at the academies of the Montmartre district and l'École des Arts Appliqués.  In 1936, the artist befriended Tal-Coat, Francis Gruber and Francis Tailleux.  In 1950, he met Michel Seuphor, who authored Dictionnaire de la Peintures Abstraite.  Moissset lived and worked primarily in Paris.

Moisset's salon exhibitions include: Galerie Carmine,1934; Salon des Tuileries 1934-1939; Salon des Indépendants, 1935-1939; Salon d'Automne, 1939, 1944, 1945 and the Salon des Réalités Nouvelles after 1956. Moisset also exhibited in Milan at the Prix Lissone, the Tokyo Biennial 1963-1964, the Musée d'Art et d'Industrie de Saint-Étienne and various galleries France.

Along with Tal-coat, Humblot, Rohner and others, Moisset founded the group Forces Nouvelles as a reactionary movement against an apparent intellectualism in the arts. The group was influenced by such artists as George de La Tour Le Nain and Chardin and worked from emotive expressionist techniques, later experimenting with the abstract.  Moisset also illustrated several books during his career.

The Musée National d'Art Moderne in Paris has collected his work in addition to museums in Créteil, Djakarta, Dunkerkque, Lille and Saint-Étienne.

Raymond Moisset died in April 15, 1995.
