Maurice Estève grew up in France splitting his time between his grandparents' home in the countryside (Culan) and his parents' home in Paris. When he was in Paris, he frequently went to the Louvre to look at paintings. After spending the years of WWI in Culan, he returned to Paris where he made his living as a typographer and furniture designer while painting in his free time. After overseeing a textile design studio in Barcelona in 1923, he returned to Paris in 1924 to concentrate on painting. Color was an important element in Estève's work.
