IDBURY PRINTS

LUC-ALBERT MOREAU (French / 1882-1948)

In 1907 Luc-Albert Moreau shared a studio with André Dunoyer de Segonzac and Jean-Louis de Boussingault. Moreau exhibited as a painter with the Cubists in 1912, but soon reverted to a more traditional style. His closest artistic allies were Dunoyer de Segonzac, Boussingault, Valdo-Barbey, and Villeboeuf. Luc-Albert Moreau's lithographs of Parisian bars, restaurants, nightclubs, music halls, brothels and circuses reveal a comprehensive knowledge of the lively Paris underworld, including the gay and lesbian scene. After WWI, Moreau lived with the violinist Hélène Jourdan-Morhange, the widow of the painter Jacques Jourdan, killed in the war. In the early twenties the couple moved to Mesnils to be near their close friend, the composer Ravel. See: J.-R. Thomé, Catalogue de l'oeuvre lithographié et gravé de Luc-Albert Moreau, 1938; Mornand, Vingt-Deux Artistes du Livre, 1948.
