Alain Jacquet Camouflage Painter & Andy Wahrol – Camouflage Line

Jacquet was born in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. Though he studied architecture at École des Beaux-Arts, as a painter he was an autodidact.

Camouflage Botticelli (Birth of Venus) (1963-64) is a famous work of his. In a series of camouflage paintings, he often used motifs from older, very famous paintings, such as in this case from the painting The Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli. Jacquet also borrowed the form of Manet‘s Luncheon on the Grass, which itself had referred to the 1515 engraving The Judgment of Paris by Raimondi and The Pastoral Concert ca. 1510, by Giorgione or Titian in the Louvre, in a series of 95 identical serigraphies: portraying the art critic Pierre Restany and the painter Mario Schifano, one of which was left in the lobby of the hotel Chelsea in New York City for payment of his room.
