Jacques Monory – (born in 1934)

Jacques Monory is a French painter, living and working in Cachan. Monory was only 21 when he first exhibited his art publically at Gallery Kléber in Paris. He became one of the principal representatives of the French figuration narrative movement, which, in the Sixties, was opposed to geometrical, kinetic or abstract expressionist painting and sympathetic to the art of the New Realism movement.

His canvases suggest heavy atmospheres while pulling subject matter from modern civilization, often using silkscreen processes that borrow from photographic and cinematographic sources, and a reliance on monochrome color.
