Biography

Luxembourg artist and author, considered to be one of Luxembourg's most prominent painters, together with Joseph Kutter. He won the Prix Grand-Duc Adolphe in 1936 and became president of the Cercle artistique de Luxembourg in 1939.

It was in 1950 that he first started to paint in the geometric style of abstract art, leading him in 1954 to be one of the founding members and spokesman of the Iconomaques, a group of Luxembourg artists devoted to abstract art. He completed two mosaics for Luxembourg's Nouvel Athénée in 1962 and became a member of the arts and literature section of Grand Ducal Institute.

Michel Stoffel died in Luxembourg City on 29 March 1963. To mark the centenary of his birth, in 2003 Luxembourg's National Museum of History and Art held an exhibition of his work: Rétrospective Michel Stoffel 1903–1963.
