Gustave Adolphe Mossa

(1883- 1971)
 

   

 

Born in Nice.

A late Symbolist, himself the son of a painter, Mossa admired Moreau. His work takes up the Symbolist themes with detachment and humour. He treated most of the Symbolist subjects, in particular that of Woman, who appears in his work as perverse by nature.
