French painter, sculptor and commercial designer. He studied Architecture at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris but was a self-taught painter. In 1962-63, he produced a series of camouflages that included a large format painting camouflage of an image called hot-dog by Roy Lichtenstein, that identified Jacquet with the Pop Art movement. In 1964, he began the series of images Déjeuner sur l'Herbe, a photographic re-staging of the famous Manet painting, using his friends as models. In 1965, he helped create Mec Art and, as from 1969, he began researching into the relationship between the real and unreal, producing sculptures with apparently real, but false, materials. In the 70s, he began a series of paintings which represented Earth as seen in photographs taken in space. He died in New York in 2008.
