French painter born in Paris. Jacqueline studied decorative arts in Paris, married Andre Breton in 1934 and was the subject of many of his poems of those years including "La Nuit de Tournesol" which anticipated their meeting. She began exhibiting objects and drawings with the Surrealists, and upon arrival in New York, she developed automatism into a series of intense prismatic paintings close in spirit to the abstract work of Matta and Masson. Separated from Breton in 1943 and later married the American sculptor and photographer David Hare. Her first one-woman exhibition was at the Norlyst Gallery, New York, in 1944. Also exhibited at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (1946) and Galerie Pierre, Paris (1947). Exhibitions: London (1936), Tokyo (1937).
