Jean Puy, enrolled at Lyon, Ecole des Beaux-Arts from 1895 to 1897, frequented Tony Tollet's studio, where he met Jules Migonney, whom he would meet again in Paris.
Moving to Paris in 1899, Jean Puy befriended Henri Matisse, whom he met in Eugène Carrière's studio at the Camillo Academy.
From the École des Beaux-Arts, Matisse, Albert Marquet and Henri Manguin formed a group in Gustave Moreau's class, joined by Charles Camoin.
From the group's first exhibition at art dealer Berthe Weill's in 1904, Jean Puy was assimilated to the Moreau group by critics. Jean Puy embraced their innovative tendencies and shared their research. He exhibited at the Indépendants from 1900 to 1912.
Jean Puy is associated with the Fauve group at the 1905 Salon d'Automne, even though he exhibits in the room adjoining that of his friends Camoin, Manguin, Marquet and Matisse.
