Louis Moilliet (October 6, 1880 – August 24, 1962) was an artist from Switzerland who was noted as a painter and stained glass designer.[1] He was lifelong friends with fellow artists Paul Klee and August Macke, spending time painting and traveling with them in Tunisia 1914 and introducing Klee into the group Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider) earlier in 1911. His expressionist painting style was closely connected with that of the Orphism movement. One of his more popular works is titled "In The Circus".
