Yvonne Jacquette (born 1934, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) is an American painter and printmaker known in particular for her depictions of aerial landscapes, especially her low-altitude and oblique aerial views of cities or towns, often painted using a distinctive, pointillistic technique. She is currently represented by DC Moore Gallery, New York.

Biography[edit]

Jacquette grew up in Stamford, Connecticut[1] and studied at the Rhode Island School of Design. She taught at Moore College of Art and was a visiting artist at the University of Pennsylvania from 1972 to 1976. She taught at Parsons School of Design from 1975 to 1978, and at the University of Pennsylvania from 1979 to 1984.[2]

Her three-part mural "Autumn Expression" (1980) is in the U.S. Post Office in Bangor, Maine. According to the Smithsonian American Art Museum's online bio, Ms. Jacquette has held various academic positions and was also honored by the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1990.

In an interview with art critic John Yau in The Brooklyn Rail, Jacquette says of the way she came to begin painting aerial views:

It happened by accident, of course. I didn’t ever plan it, I was going to visit my parents who had just moved to California and I was in a plane with watercolors and I started to see that the clouds were amazing when you’re right in them.[3]

She married Rudy Burckhardt.[4] She is a visiting artist at the Siena Art Institute.[5] She lives in New York City.[6]
