Listen to the Brel song while looking at this work! It is outstanding! You can actually feel the unspeakable suffering!
Raymond Moretti is probably 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 (La revue littéraire, Pilote, etc.). He also left monumental works everywhere in France, including his renowned mural (200sqm) in the Forum des Halles in Paris and in his hometown, Nice. He illustrated over 30 French postage stamps.
Moretti was friends with Picasso and Cocteau and collaborated with both of them.
His work is instantly identifiable. Vivacity, energy, confidence, breathtaking thanks to his skill.
