Alain Jacquet


Alain Jacquet was a French artist, born February 22, 1939 in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, and died September 4, 2008 in New York City. He is widely acknowledged as being a French representative of the American Pop Art movement, a visual artistic movement that emerged in the 1950s. He was married (1992) to Sophie Matisse, great-granddaughter of the French Fauvist artist Henri Matisse. Alain Jacquet lived in New York and Paris and taught at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs. Camouflage Botticelli (Birt of Venus) (1963-64) is a famous work of his. In a series of camouflage paintings, he often used motifs from older, very famous paintings, such as in this case from the painting The Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli.
