At the end of World War II after a group show at Silk City in 1948 Cottavoz, along with Pierre Coquet who also attended the École des Beaux-Arts in Lyon, helped to found a group of painters who called themselves Noisme. This group was also referred to as the Lyon School of New Figuration. The group was comprised of those artists under the age of 30 whose sole purpose was to paint “in the light” with no particular defining kind of technique. In 1953 Cottavoz was awarded the Fénénon Prize by the University of Paris.
