Michel Mousseau

Born in Anjou (France), Michel Mousseau lives and works in Paris.
Mainly a painter, he also has a live practice of drawing in the open, as he goes walking in the countryside. Descriptive at first, those drawings have grown into vegetation itself.
They reveal a relationship to nature which is both moving and tragic just as in his paintings colour pays tribute to daylight. Since 1960 his paintings have been shown in Solo or Group exhibitions in France and
abroad, Tokyo, London, Geneva, Tel Aviv, Prague, New York, Beijing in particular, and recently in Italy. Two major exhibitions of his works have has been held at the National Fine Arts Museum and National Library of Havana (Cuba).
In 2019, a special exhibition was devoted to his graphite works 103 dessins Territoiredes origines in the Domaine de Kerguéhennec, an art center in Britanny. His work is regularly shown at Virgile Legrand Gallery in Paris, 56 rue de l’Université 75007.
