Publication produced to coincide with Jacqueline De Jong's exhibition at MOSTYN (9 October 2021 - 6 February 2022).
Dutch avant-garde artist Jacqueline de Jong (b. 1939) is best known for her involvement in the Situationist International and for her lively, monumental paintings. Her varied, six-decade-long career has encompassed drawing, graphic design, sculpture, jewellery, printmaking, and books, as well as the magazine The Situationist Times, which she edited from 1962–1967. This volume features large-scale reproductions of her works, much of it newly photographed, allowing the reader to appreciate de Jong’s keen attention to colour and the values of opacity and transparency of paint. An international team of writers and curators offer a panoply of perspectives on the artist’s remarkable work and long career.
