Jean-Marie Euzet was born in Sete (France) in 1905, and was a painter and designer of tapestries.
He studied at the National School of Decorative Arts in Limoges. In the 1920’s his work was influenced by Cubism: however on meeting the artists Louis Baudron and Henri Valensi ( the founder of the ‘Association des Artistes Musicales’ in 1932), he became inspired by their Manifesto which sought to interpret the rhythms of music in two dimensions through abstract shapes.

In 1948 he became a professor at the National School of Decorative Arts in Limoges, and his work underwent a change between 1949-56 when he concentrated on abstract compositions where the curve is the dominant feature, but with some allusions to a figurative framework.

He exhibited at the Salon des Realites Nouvelles, Salon des Independants and the Salon Comparaisons where Henri Valensi curated the ‘Musicaliste’ rooms. He also exhibited in group exhibitions in Amsterdam, Prague, Vienna and The Hague.

Euzet designed several tapestries for the ‘Manufacture National d’Aubusson’. Subjects included ‘The Port’,’ The City’, and a series of three tapestries entitled ‘Summer Nights’.

He died in 1980 in Limoges.
