Maurice Moy ( - )

Maurice Moy is a painter from Rennes, a former student of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Rennes. He painted his native town, but also the whole of Brittany, with numerous seascapes. He also produced a few paintings of southern Algeria and Tunisia. A contemporary of Mathurin Méheut, he did not achieve the production or fame of the latter, although he had a comparable vigour of line. He also occasionally dabbled in cubism. He exhibited at the Salon des Indépendants from 1923. An article in the Ouest Éclair of 1925 speaks of him in the following terms: "Le peintre ces ciels qui n'ont rien de conventionnels" (The painter of those skies that have nothing conventional about them), a very accurate description of the work we are presenting.
