Biography

Born in a Provençale family, Marie Raymond started painting in Alexander Stoppler’s studio in Cagnes-sur-Mer. In 1926, she married a young Dutch painter, Fred Klein; they had a son together (Yves Klein) two years later. She and her husband led a bohemian life in Montparnasse, where she met among others, the artists Jacques Villon and František Kupka. Back in Nice in 1932, she took classes at the École des Arts Décoratifs, where she met the sculptor Émile Gilioli. She obtained a commission to create a fresco for the Alpes-Maritimes pavilion for the 1937 International Exhibition. The war compelled the family to move to Cagnes-sur-Mer, where she started to paint Imaginary Landscapes (1941-1944), inspired by her walks in the countryside; at the same period, she met Nicolas de Staël, Hans Arp and Alberto Magnelli.

Immediately after the war and until 1954, she opened her apartment-studio every Monday – creating the “Lundis de Marie Raymond” (Marie Raymond’s Mondays), attended by Colette Allendy, Iris Clert, Pierre Soulages, Raymond Hains, François Dufrêne, Jacques de la Villeglé, César, Eugène Ionesco, Jean Tinguely, Hans Hartung, Nina Kandinsky, the critics Charles Estienne, Pierre Restany and Georges Boudaille.

In 1945, she took part in her first major exhibition at the Salon des Surindépendants. Her work hung next to paintings by Hans Hartung, Jean Dewasne, Jean Deyrolle and Gérard Schneider. In 1949, she was awarded the Kandinsky Prize, with Youla Chapoval, and took part in a large French art exhibition shown in several locations in South America. In 1957 the Stedelijk Museum, in Amsterdam organised a retrospective “Marie Raymond”. In 1972, a major exhibition was dedicated to her and her son at the Cagnes-sur-Mer Château-Musée. In 1988, the Pascal de Sarthe Gallery in San Francisco organised a solo show of her work.
