Raymond Moretti was a French abstract painter. Combining Hebrew letters, lines, and colors he created dynamic works, which flit in and out of abstraction.

Born in Nice, France on July 23, 1931, he made a living creating lithographs for posters, magazine covers, and stamps. Deeply involved with jazz music, he had many famous musicians sit for him, including Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, and Thelonious Monk. In the 1960s, the artist illustrated covers for a series of 12 highly sought-after jazz LPs called Moretti Verve.

Notably, he created the French Judicial Police logo, which combines the head of a man with the head of a tiger. Moretti died on June 3, 2005 in Paris, France.
