"Croisic Harbour By Maurice Moy"Oil on hardboard. Signed lower right.
Maurice Moy (1883 - 1945): is a painter from Rennes, former student of the School of Fine Arts in Rennes, who has not stopped painting his hometown but also all of Brittany, with numerous navies. He also produced some paintings on the Algerian South and Tunisia. Contemporary of Mathurin Méheut, he achieved neither the production nor the celebrity of the latter, although having a comparable trait vigor. He also happened to touch cubism. He exhibited in 1923 at the Salon des Indépendants. An article in Ouest Eclair from 1925 spoke of him in these terms "The painter these skies which have nothing conventional", a very apt qualifier on the work that we present.
