Jacqueline de Jong was born in 1939, in the Dutch town of Hengelo to a cosmopolitan family. Jacqueline grew up experiencing different fields in the creative industries finding her true talent in art. Thanks to this eclectic background she has developed an extremely interesting and diversified profile that can be recognized in her artistic practice.
She started painting when she was working at the Stedelijk Museum (1958-1961) and since then she developed her style increasingly towards figurative. In 1959 she met the Danish painter Asger Jorn, founder of the Cobra group and they became companions. In 1960, she joined the Situationist International.
In 2003 a retrospective exhibition of her work was shown at the Cobra Museum for Contemporary Art Amstelveen Holland and the Kunst Centret Silkeborg Bad Denmark, whereas a monography was published ‘Undercover in de Kunst/in Art’ Edition Ludion, Belgium.
