DOUCET, Jacques
Born at Boulogne-sur-Seine in 1924 in a bourgeois milieu. Finishing his secondary studies he develops an interest in the poets and novelists of his time. He becomes friendly with Max Jacob and often stays with him for short periods of time at Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire. Encouraged by Max Jacob, he begins to draw and paint. He is imprisoned by the Vichy government and is freed at the Liberation. He travels in central Europe, in Italy, in Switzerland. His artistic evolution is indebted to Matisse, who taught him color and schematisation, then to Klee and Miro. He has found his true language in non-figurative art. He exhibited for the first time in 1948 and regularly since at the Galerie Colette Allendy. In 1954 he exhibited at the Galerie Ariel. He has exhibited also at the Salon de Mai. In 1950 he took part in the exhibition called "Les Mains Eblouies" which was held at the Galerie Maeght. Special exhibitions of his work were held at Basle, Zurich, Genoa, Brussels.
