is a French artist born in 1924 in Paris and died in 2018.
After training as a painter and decorator at the School of Applied Arts in Paris, Jacques Monory works for ten years at a publisher where he is in contact with the world of photography that will greatly influence his work as a painter later.
In the mid-1960s, he became one of the founders of narrative figuration. This artistic movement is very inspired by cinema and photography with the idea of representation of the duration, the idea of telling a story with an image. In Jacques Monory the colors are frank, cold, usually in a shades of blue, the representations express a certain violence, a harshness of the situation. Several images can appear on the same board as movie sequences on the same image.
Many of his works are featured in many museums around the world.
