Morreau, Jacqueline

Fleeing Woman III

Figurative painter Jacqueline Morreau had a keen sense of how history affects our present social conditions. The legacy of conflict, religious intolerance and patriarchal oppression are recurrent themes in her work. ‘I was born into the knowledge of evil in the 1930s’, she explained, ‘which no one of my generation could escape.’ Much of her work is peopled with figures from classical mythology, explored from a feminist perspective.
