Raymond Moretti is one of the most gifted and greatest French painters and sculptors of the 20th century. An instinctive portraitist, he illustrated many books, posters and magazine covers (Revue Littéraire, Pilote, etc.). He also left monumental paintings in his hometown of Nice and throughout France (including his renown 200 sqm mural in the Forum des Halles of Paris). and illustrated more than 30 French postal stamps.
Friend of Picasso and Cocteau, his work is instantly identifiable. Vivacity, energy, confidence, breathtaking thanks to his skill. Great master of colour, each of his works radiates a breathtaking beauty and rightness.
