Jacqueline de Jong

AWARE publication out now

The AWARE Archives of Women Artists' interview with Jacqueline de Jong, the 2019 recipient of the AWARE Outstan­ding Merit Prize, is now available in bookshops.


“I wasn’t being a great philoso­pher when I painted. I was pretty down-to-earth (except when I ventured into the cosmos…). This prosaic quality is embodied in the form of violence that can be found at every stage of my painting, right up to the most recent series dealing with war.”


The second volume of the collec­tion of interviews with recipients of Outstan­ding Merit Prize is now available. This second tome is dedica­ted to Jacque­line de Jong – the winner of the 2019 Prize. The interview was conduc­ted by Gallien Déjean, art critic and freelance curator.


The AWARE Prize for Women Artists received support from the French Ministry of Cultural Affairs.

This publica­tion received a publishing grant from the Région Ile-de-France and the kind support of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Nether­lands.
