This brilliantly colored nautical scene depicts boats in a harbor. The sun reflects off the water in colorblock patterns, while the clouds are built up in bright, rounded forms. This serene still life perfectly captures the tranquility of life on the water.

Marcel Mouly (1918-2008) was a French abstract artist who studied under Jacques Lipchitz. His work is in the collection of over 20 museums throughout the world, including the Museum of Modern Art Paris. He was awarded the Chevalier de L’Orde des Arts et Lettres (1957) and the Premier Prix de Lithographie (1973). “His art is pure and direct in its message,” said art historian and writer Joseph Jacobs. “It is an art about beauty and life, and art roots firmly planted in the School of Paris. Picasso, Braque, Matisse, Rouault, Vlaminck, Chagall, Vuillard and Dufy are his patrimony, and he has carried their mantel with unflagging dedication.”
