Mosson was born in 1851 in Aix-en-Provence in the South of France. At the age of 14 he came to Berlin in 1865 and completed his school education here. He began his studies at the Berlin academy with Carl Steffeck and Hermann Freese, after which he went to the Weimar art school. From 1884, Mosson exhibited in Berlin. In 1892, George Mosson was co-founder of the “Association of the XI” and in 1898 founding member of the Berlin Secession, which had joined in protest against the German academy art. After the split of the Secession in 1913, he went to the Freie Sezession together with Max Liebermann, Max Slevogt and others, and was a member of the Deutscher Künstlerbundes . On September 3, 1933, Mosson died in Berlin.
