'Just as intriguing as her artworks is de Jong herself, whose fiery temper and rebellious attitude has made her a fascinating figure to study both in the canon of art history and today'.⁠⁠

A solo exhibition of Jacqueline de Jong's drawings related to her 'Upstairs-Downstairs' paintings from the mid-1980s, is now on view at Pippy Houldsworth Gallery in London.
