Perrotin Adds Alain Jacquet to Roster Alain Jacquet, a French artist involved with the Nouveau Réalisme and the Nouvelle Figuration movements of the 1960s and ’70s, has joined the roster of Perrotin gallery, which has spaces in Paris, Hong Kong, New York, Seoul, Tokyo, and Shanghai.

Most famous for his painting based on Déjeuner sur l’Herbe (1964), in which he has superimposed Ben-Day dots over the figures in Manet’s famed 1862 painting of the same name, Jacquet often created figurative scenes in which his images are hidden beneath spirals, dots, stripes, and more. “Alain Jacquet, whom I had the pleasure of knowing, is a significant artist within the trajectory of twentieth-century art,” said Emmanuel Perrotin, founder of Perrotin, in a statement.
